A special LSP thank you to the parishioners of St. Patrick’s in Rockville and Msgr. Hart for including the Jeanne Jugan Residence in their Butterfly Cross Program. Similar to Angel Tree programs held at Christmas, except that parishioners take a paper butterfly from the cross and then purchase the item on its label. There is a lot that a large Home like ours can wish for but knowing that our Residents love Bingo, and the more often the better, we wished for BINGO prizes. Keeping our Bingo prize cart stocked and exciting is a challenge. But not anymore – at least for a while! Through the Butterfly Cross Program, we have just received a large quantity of sodas, chips, candy, gum, body wash, lotion, change purses, jewelry and stationary, which Julie Rock delivered to our Home.
In addition to the Bingo Prizes, we also received generous donations that will allow the Little Sisters to buy several in-service nurses training DVD’s and some fun activity resources too!
