Save St. Joe's

Stories of love and hope are what we need now more than ever.  This story is one of those... You may have seen in the news the story of St. Joe's senior home in Woodbridge, New Jersey, having its residents evacuated due to the Corona virus.  Our mom, Elvira Attilio, is one of the residents. But this story is not about our mom. It's about the loving and courageous staff at St.  Joe's who cared for her - before, during and after this crisis.  The Sisters and staff laid their own lives on the line to help our mom and all the residents, in every way possible. Right now, the emergency we are facing is to sanitize and return St. Joe’s to normal so these residents can return as quickly as possible to their home.  It’s a place of love, hope and caring, of devoted personal care and attention.  And for that we need your help. All the funds will go to all the cleaning and restorative services for St. Joe's to re-open.  Nothing goes to other expenses.  The financial goal of this campaign is just a placeholder right now.  The goal will be updated once we have the actual estimate from the contractors. Every penny counts: no donation is too small. Any funds you can provide will bring all the residents one step closer to going home and reuniting with their friends and family at St. Joe's. There will be tears for those we lost, but together, we will stand strong in faith and love and work to heal and put their lives back together.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this story, and know that whatever you decide, we send you our love and wishes that you stay safe and well throughout this crisis. Love and faith will get us through! With all our love and deepest gratitude! The Attilio Family
