Good Samaritan Wildflower Terrace residents in Alliance surpassed all their previous efforts for raising money for Jane’s Closet this year.
Bette Murray, a volunteer at Wildflower Terrace, organizes events to sell the handmade necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pins crafted by residents of Wildflower Terrace throughout the year.
The jewelry was sold at Kmart, Bowl-Mor Lanes, local hair salons, Heritage Days Family Night and the Stand Up for Cancer Auction, to name just a few.
The group recently presented Jane’s Closet representative Lori Mazanec (at left) with a check for $2,020, far above last year’s total of $1,309.
The group is looking for ways to expand their selection next year and to include something for men as well.
Jane’s Closet helps those diagnosed with cancer and their families in a variety of ways. Area residents can contact Ms. Mazanec at 308-762-4357, ext. 3428.
