In partnership with the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Sisters Rising Worldwide was able to provide much-needed resources to hundreds of mothers and their children whom the Sisters serve in their program, Learning In Style which is located in the metropolitan area of St. Paul, MN.
Having suffered trauma, torture, or trafficking, the women come to the Sisters to learn English, math, computer and job skills, and citizenship and have access to free childcare while they attend class; all in an environment of sincere support and respect for all.
Thanks to our wonderful donors, we were able to provide these mothers and their children with $10,000 worth of diapers and paper products. And, thanks to Paul Slattery and the Teamsters Local 120 for helping us deliver these supplies to their destination. “It filled the brim of the Teamsters huge trailer,” said SRW founder Sister Irene O’Neill.
Thank you to all who participated in this fundraising campaign and for helping the Sisters continue to impact the lives of so many. Special thanks to Molly Hennelly who, as part of her senior Merit Scholar Project, collected and dropped off a lot of the donations before she headed off to school in the mornings.
Some of the photos from delivery day are below.
