The May Jennie Day Meal consisted of Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice, with White Chocolate Brownies with Ice Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. We’d like to thank the Walmart Foundation for their sponsorship of the May meal, and also Girl Scout troop 10233 for the delicious Brownies and ice cream! We’re also pleased to announce that the Jennie Day monthly meals are now sponsored through the end of the year. We will be opening the 2020 calendar soon.
May distributions also included 20-day stay sponsorship at both the Greater Hudson Valley and Philadelphia Ronald McDonald Houses, Amazon Gift Cards for both Houses, supplies for the GHV House, and preemie clothes, grocery and gas gift cards for the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital Family Resource Center. We thank our donors for making these grants possible, and helping ease the burden of these families dealing with serious childhood illnesses.
Next month, in addition to the Jennie Day meal, we are looking forward to awarding the Jennie Foundation Scholarships to six local high school students who have overcome adversity in their scholastic or personal lives. The scholarships hold a special meaning for us, as they help young people pursuing studies in fields Jennie loved, such as cooking and music/performing arts. The nursing scholarships are in tribute to the many nurses, both in the hospital and at home, who cared for and loved Jen throughout her treatment.
Thank you once again for all you do to support The Jennie Foundation!
