Care Bag Project – We produce enough bags to service as many women in Ventura County as possible. Fabric cutters and sewers are always needed and welcome to help make Ribbons of Life Care Bags for women in Ventura County who are preparing for surgery and other breast cancer treatments.  Local vendors are needed to help us fill these bags with heartwarming items: that will provide women with inspiration, pampering, humor, love and more as they go through their journey with breast cancer.

This project was infused with love and care by the Charles D. and Mary A. Bauer Foundation Grant.  The grant was presented in September 2017 by Sandra & Doug Moe, the daughter and son-in-law of the Bauer’s.
