Local Woman Making Scarves to Help Community Cancer Center
NORMAL - When it comes to healing, a local woman is putting fashion forward.
Melissa Ash is making scarves for the cure.
She’s been sewing for years.
Recently Ash decided her passion could be used for a greater good.
So, she's selling handmade scarves for $18.
All proceeds will be given to the Community Cancer Center in Normal which is currently in the process of a multi-million dollar expansion.
Ash says the scarves are a great way to generate extra revenue for the cause.
“People love wearing them and it feels good to give back. I normally wouldn’t be able to give as much money as I have in just what I make. It feels good,” said Ash.
Last year the scarves generated $3,000 for the American Cancer Society.
