The Holy Cross Center for Women offers educational programs and other services for homeless and low-income women and their children.
The gift is a result of the club’s 2016 fundraising efforts.
Sister Mary Clennon, director of the Holy Cross Center for Women, accepted the donation on behalf of the Center, presented by Stacy Vaillancourt, Saint Agnes Medical Center chief administrative officer, and Rita Gladding, Women’s Club president.
“We thank the Women’s Club for all the work they have done to accomplish this,” Clennon said. “It is wonderful for all the people we serve.”
The donation helps fund the Center’s educational programs, such as six-week long summer programs for children and young people ages 4 to 17, and personal services for women and children including laundry and showering facilities and weekly distribution of clothing and diapers. The gift will also help to revitalize the Center’s playground area for children.
