"Throughout the month of May, Fort Wayne Neighborhoods, businesses, city departments and the public will team up to proudly show their support for the fight against breast cancer. The pink ribbons you see are part of The Vera Bradley Foundation is sponsoring Breast Cancer's Annual Turn the Town Pink Events to rais funds for breast cancer research at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center.
The Foundation is "seeking additional individuals who are interested in coordinating a Pink Ribbon Campaign in their neighborhood this spring. It is simple and fun for neighborhoods to get involved. We will supply information and order forms. You can email them to your residents, or we can supply hard copies for distribution. We need key volunteers in each neighborhood to collect the orders and deliver the ribbon kits. As part of the campaign we also need volunteers to help assemble the ribbon kits. The kit assembly will be organized into fun Vera Bradley 'workdays' at one of the Vera Bradley locations or at a committee member's home."
The deadline for signing up for our neighborhood has passed, but anyone wishing to get involved is invited to contact the Vera Bradley Foundation at Foundation@verabradley.com or at (260) 207-5105.
