Jordan started Cozys for the Cure in 2015 when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. She started sewing coffee cup sleeves but transitioned to masks during the pandemic. Her high school teammates often come over to help make the products as part of their volunteer “Golden Hours.” She has raised more than $100,000 for the Susan G. Komen foundation to provide mobile mammogram units to reach people in rural areas. Jordan started the program in Athens, OH, and has continued it in her new home in Aberdeen, SD.
Jordan will donate her Y-PIF proceeds to Cozy for the Cure.
