Jeanne Jugan Residence needs your help! As a mendicant order, (one which relies solely on the charity of others), we do not enjoy any type of endowment or long-term funding. Following in St. Jeanne Jugan’s footsteps, we Little Sisters rely solely on God’s Providence through the generosity of our friends and benefactors to provide for the needs of our Residents. Approximately 60% of the funds needed to operate our Home come from the Residents—most of this is Medicaid reimbursement for nursing care. The remaining 40% of the needed income is generated through fundraising—everything from direct mail campaigns, church collections, legacies and grants, to the many fund raising events held each year. We invite you to consider becoming part of the loving family of the Jeanne Jugan Residence by helping the Little Sisters of the Poor through your prayers, generous gift of self or donation. Tomorrow’s needs in caring for the elderly can be met by helping today!
Thank you so much for the many donations, prayers and gestures of kindness being shown Jeanne Jugan Residence during this time of worldwide crisis.
Because we are unable to continue visiting local parishes and businesses to ask for monetary support and gifts in kind, our need is greater than usual.
We are in need of hand sanitizer, face masks, disposal gowns, body wash, tissues, paper plates and cups, plastic spoons, forks, knives as well as monetary donations to meet out ordinary and increased expenses at this time.
We are eternally grateful for your most generous support of our mission. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have reached out to us, as well as all the health care workers who are so generously caring for the sick, beginning with our own staff members.
We Little Sisters and our elderly Residents are praying for all of you and for an end to this scourge.
