Hugh’s News: Local nursing home gets big donation
Sacred Heart Home in Hyattsville was the beneficiary of an annual charity ball organized by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Father Rosensteel Council of the Knights of Columbus in SIlver Spring, Md. A check for over $25,000 was expected to be presented to Sacred Heart Home on Monday, Dec. 8, 2014.
Over 260 people attended the charity ball, which was held in November. Nancy Marchone, a co-chairwoman of the event, said, “This was the most successful fund raising event we have ever held.” Paul Fecteau, a resident of Sacred Heart Home, is the husband ball co-chairwoman Cecile Fecteau.
The facility has been a treasure in Hyattsville since it opened in 1926 providing intermediate and long-term care to some 100 aged and infirmed residents. It is operated by the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate and located at 5805 Queens Chapel Road. The sisters are committed to Christ’s call for mercy in caring for those in need.
Anyone wishing to make a donation during the Christmas season to support this non-profit charity can send their check payable to Sacred Heart Home.
