Sacred Heart Children's Home receives generous donation

By  | 

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A generous donation will go a long way to helping local youth in our area who do not have the luxury of living home with their parents.

The Women’s City Club donated several much needed appliances to the Sacred Heart Children’s Home, including two boilers, a stove and a refrigerator.

Sister Maria Valdez with the children’s home says their mission is to help every child that ends up at their facility.

Right now they have 40 children living there, both boys and girls.

Sister Valdez says these donations will go a long way to helping provide for the kids.

Valdez says, “We help out the parent or grandmother, whomever is the guardian of the child while they are going through some troubled times and we serve them as they were at home. We try to give them as much as we can.”

Every year the Women’s City Club donates to the children’s home as well as several other local organizations.

Last year, they gave out more than $287,000 in donations.
