FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – In honor of a woman who has spent the last 24 years celebrating the birthdays of others, the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission on Thursday celebrated “Cake Lady’s” birthday.

Every month, Sandra Wright makes a cake and then drops it off at the Rescue Mission for the men who are celebrating birthdays that month.

That’s why the men at the Rescue Mission know her affectionately as “Cake Lady.”

She likes to change up the flavor, too. This month was cherry, which she thought was appropriate for Valentine’s Day.

On Thursday, Wright celebrated her 70th birthday.

The Rescue Mission held a birthday celebration Thursday and also honored her decades of service to the organization.
