Joseph Curley recently presented a $1,000.00 donation from the Cummings Properties Employee Directed Giving Program to the SeniorCare Meals on Wheels Program. Receiving the check are Scott Trenti, Executive Director of SeniorCare and Linnea Hagberg, Nutrition Program Director. Last year SeniorCare delivered 131,649 meals to homebound elders and served 39,832 meals at senior dining sites in Beverly, Gloucester, Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Rockport, Ipswich, Hamilton, Topsfield and Wenham. The donation kicks off SeniorCare’s 2014 March for Meals campaign to raise awareness of the need for senior meals. For more information visit www.seniorcareinc.org
I am a GMG fan, and have a big event coming up, but due to my own tech-dummy problem, have not been able to get it on the GMG site.
Can you help me?
Unfortunately, it is coming up soon! (I’m sure you have heard this before)
I am a Co-Chair of the Gloucester Coalition for the Prevention of Domestic Abuse along with Sunny Robiinson We have joined the global initiative
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE 2014 which is a flash-mob and speak-out about violence against women and girls.
Given the brutal headlines in the GDT this past week, we hope that lots of people will show up.
2013 was our first One Billion Rising event, and we were well supported by the community, the city and the police department.
This year, we hope to gather at least 100 people on Main Street!
Our event will be on Friday, February 14th, Valentines Day at 12:30, Cape Ann Savings Bank Park, 101 Main Street
Speakers will include:
-Mayor Carolyn Kirk
-HAWC Executive Director Anthony DiPietro
-YWCA North Shore Rape Crisis representative Sally Struble
-GPD Lt. David Quinn
-Staff from SeniorCare
I will emcee (Nicki Richon-Schoel)
There is great video at www.onebillionrising.org , but again- being tech-dumb can’t seem to figure out how to upload onto GMG!
ALSO: THERE IS ONE REHEARSAL remaining to learn the dance to One Billion Rising.
It will be on Wednesday, Feb 12 at JANINES FITNESS, ROCKPORT.
Really hope you can help put this out to the community, and eternally grateful!
