BENEFITING: LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR OF LOS ANGELES
EVENT DATE: May 30, 2015
This spring we are excited to host our very first 5K run! 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the elderly residents at Little Sisters of the Poor. Our home does not have air conditioning, the money raised will go to purchase tower fans for each residents room. Our goal is to have 50 runners/ walkers participate in this event for $35 each. With 50 participate every finisher will receive a ceramic crafted medallion handmade by residents and volunteers. Together our goal is to raise $3,000.00 for the residents! Saturday, May 30th will be a beautiful day and we hope to see every runner/ walker out enjoying this event!
Each year the Little Sisters must raise over 60% of their operating costs from gifts, bequests and donated commodities. It is with benefactors like you that truly believe in the mission and vision of the Little Sisters that we are able to continue in the work St. Jeanne Jugan, did in caring for the neediest sick, elderly poor within the home of every race and religion. With your help we welcome each resident, value them and treat them with dignity and grace until God calls them to himself. The Sisters pray daily in gratitude for every kindness! -Dolores Kollmer, Developmental Director
