Sister Jerome’s Mission: College Receives $10K in Grants
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Sister Jerome’s Mission: College program recently received $10,000 in contributions from three philanthropic organizations.
The program, which is now assisting 10 city college students to complete their education and secure a good job, received $5,000 from the Thomases Family Endowment, $3,000 from the Frances Shermer Charitable Trust and $2,000 from the Zita M. and Joseph DiYorio Charitable Foundation.
Sister Jerome’s Mission College, which is a ministry of the Ursuline Center, helps lower-income students with “living expenses” gift cards to help buy gas, food, on-campus, clothing and various other necessities for getting a college education today. The program also provides mentoring in academics and planning.
In return, the students must do four things: maintain a good grade point average, keep their finances in order, obey college/university regulations and hold a part-time job.
To donate to the program or for more information, call 330 792 7636.
