She said, “It is indeed a pleasure to be here at the Cardin Home as just one way of our saying thank you and being a helping hand. Today, it is a pleasure to be with nurse and to be able to make a small contribution to the Cardin Home and we want to say a big thank you for the excellent job you have been doing in our community in helping many of the less fortunate of our society.”
According to Bass, the St. Christopher Children’s Home and Safe Haven were also among that received packages.
“People Helping People” is the theme under which Credit Union Week is being observed.
