Carl M. Albero, who recently retired from St. Mary’s Board of Directors and joined our Honorary Board, is a huge Yankees fan. He gave St. Mary’s a treasure trove of Yankees memorabilia to go on display at The Albero House, our home for adults with disabilities; Carl and his wife, Carol Anne, were the home’s main benefactors.
Bob Kraly, a partner with Image Business Interiors, one of St. Mary’s staunchest corporate supporters, recently dropped by with his son to add something personal to the collection: the baseball card of his father, Steve, who pitched for the Yankees in 1953. His father passed away in 2016 at the age of 86.
“St. Mary’s is truly a special place!” Bob’s 12-year-old son, Ty, wrote in a thank-you card after he and his father visited.
Thank you to the Kraly family for your generosity!
