St. Mary’s Home recently welcomed Carol McCormack, the new CEO and president of United Way of South Hampton Roads. We are pleased to be one of the 70 worthy partner agencies supported by UWSHR. Get ready for campaign season, and LIVE UNITED.

First accepted into the Norfolk Community Chest in 1955, St. Mary’s Home has valued our relationship with United Way for many years. The Norfolk Community Chest became the United Way of South Hampton Roads in 1984, and for more than 50 years we have relied on generous support from this nonprofit organization.

As summer ends, we welcome the opportunity to join United Way colleagues in presentations and tours to share with others the difference their contributions make in the lives of our children and young adults at St. Mary’s.We look forward to the annual Day of Caring each September and appreciate the number of incredible projects volunteers accomplish on this day throughout Hampton Roads.

Mad Hatters

It’s Spirit Week at St. Mary’s Home, courtesy of the folks who run the school here, Southeastern Cooperation Educational Programs. As you can tell from the picture above of teaching assistant Denise Boone and Shanyla, the theme for today is crazy hats.

A lot of people are getting in on the act:

Debbie Rhoads, occupational therapy technician
Vicki and Dr. Larry White, neurologist at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters

 Karen Whitfield, certified nursing assistant
Shirley Justice, active treatment coordinator
