Social Action 10591 Supper Club Assisting RSHM Life Center!
We are raising funds to provide school supplies for 72 RSHM Life Center elementary school children, who attend both W.L. Morse and Washington Irving schools, located in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, part of the Union Free School District of the Tarrytowns.
Since the monetary value of Grades 1 - 3 supply lists vary, you can contribute anywhere from $43 - $57 to sponsor one child's full supply list. Larger or smaller donations are welcomed! Please note that we are buying the supplies in bulk to get the best prices.
The RSHM LIFE Center was founded in 1995 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM), an international congregation of women religious who has served in the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown area for over 100 years. The Mission of the RSHM LIFE Center is to welcome the needy, especially women and children, and to create with them a culture which nurtures their human development. The Center serves individuals of all faiths and cultural traditions.
With the belief that Learning Is For Everyone (LIFE), the Center has a whole family orientation in all of our programs from toddlers to senior citizens. We focus on the learning needs of the entire family and provide free childcare for adults taking programs. Getting to know the families and involving them in the Center Programs helps build stronger community relationships.
We are hoping to raise all funds by August 25th. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer for this effort, please let us know. We can use lots of help with shopping, sorting and helping to disseminate the school supplies during the last week of August. Please contact Lisa Piedimonte Bergman for more information or to volunteer: [email protected]
