Make a Difference, Show your Compassion

Michelle Ponich, Fund Development & Events

How can I make a difference in the lives of people in our community? Is this a question you ever ask yourself? Or maybe the question for some is “Does my donation really matter”?
 
Making that difference and having your dollars make an impact doesn’t have to be complicated.
 
It can be something as simple as giving the gift of time as a volunteer. Or it could be a monetary gift to an organization that you feel passionate about.
 
Every day at Sorrentino’s Compassion House we see the positive effects of how a gift of time and of money can make a difference in the lives of women travelling to our city for cancer treatment.
This house was built with a unique purpose—as a haven for women on a cancer journey. Through support and encouragement from people in our communities the house was built and expanded.
 
Cancer can be physically, emotionally and financially devastating to a family. It is very important to us to be able to keep the accommodation affordable so our guests can focus on what is most important…their health.
 
Last month we launched a very special initiative called Support a Stay that allows you to support a woman through her cancer journey. Guests pay $25/night, but the real cost is $125/night. With Support a Stay you can show your compassion by supporting a guest for a night, a week or a complete treatment cycle. A gift to this program truly alters the course of a woman’s cancer journey.
