The mothers and children at Interim House, a West Philadelphia shelter, celebrated a very happy Mother’s Day, thanks to the outreach activities of the Shared Governance Committee in Peri-Operative Services. According to Dawn DeVito, a Committee member, it was a two-part effort.
The bake sale – held during Hospital Week – is part of a tradition for the Shared Governance group. The first one, held two years ago, benefitted the Rena Rowan Breast Center; last year’s funds were donated to the Abramson Cancer Center.
Devito said the group holds several fundraising events a year, but this one “was my favorite. We wanted to be sure these moms received something special. Mothers matter.”
In a letter to the Committee, Angelita Alomar-Gilbert, program director of Interim House West, wrote, “We really relish your consideration and cannot thank you enough for thinking of us. Your continued support and help with our clients will not go unnoticed.”
