On April 30th, CREWBaltimore Outreach Committee members Polly Houck, Absolute Service Industries & Tammy Baczynskj, VSC Fire & Security Inc. coordinated and delivered purses filled with necessities to the seven women graduating from the 2018/2019 session of Learn to Earn at My Sisters’ Place.
Learn to Earn is a six-month internship program that prepares women for careers in various fields through direct training. Following completion of the curriculum, job placement assistance is provided for graduates.
“It was very inspiring to see these wonderful ladies graduate and go on with their new adventures in life,” said Tammy. “Family members being there to support the ladies in addition to the support that My Sisters’ Place has given them to achieve this, is extremely instrumental to them.”
My Sisters’ Place has been a philanthropic partner of CREWBaltimore since 2017. The Center, sponsored by Catholic Charities of Baltimore, provides three meals a day and access to services such as case management, education and job training for women in Baltimore City.
CREWBaltimore continues to support My Sisters’ Place through ongoing donations of travel-sized toiletries and personal care items. The Outreach committee plans to provide a “Christmas in July” next month for the organization, so please considering making a donation today. Donations are being collected at the registration table at all CREWBaltimore events throughout the year. Members can also participate in the drive by making a direct contribution of items through the Amazon Wishlist HERE.
