St. Mary’s ECW supports Sally’s Fund

Each year the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Laguna Beach considers the needs of many nonprofit charitable organizations to determine which might benefit from their support. 

ECW’s recipients this year include a church north of the arctic circle in Alaska that will use the funds to provide services for their youth program and a rural church in Muhangi, Uganda that will use the funds to assist in the building of their church. Closer to home, past recipients have included Friendship Shelter and Laguna Food Pantry. 

This year the ECW recognizes Sally’s Fund. Traditionally Sally’s Fund focused on providing transportation services to the most vulnerable seniors in Laguna Beach to keep them connected with the community.

During the coronavirus pandemic Sally’s Fund has stepped up and switched gears to provide a myriad of additional services to seniors including providing groceries, running errands, and organizing outings. In doing so, Sally’s Fund helps bridge the gaps caused by the quarantine and fulfills its mission to enhance the quality and dignity of the lives of our seniors.
