- donation drives
Charity of the Month: Myron Stratton Home
PPDD’s Charity of the Month for March 2020 is the Myron Stratton Home.
“In his will, Winfield Scott Stratton left a legacy to provide for poor persons who are without means of support and who are physically unable by reason of old age, youth sickness or other infirmity to earn a livelihood. The Myron Stratton Home carries out his wishes by providing housing, programs, services, and grants to improve the quality of life of those less fortunate.”
We’ll be collecting monetary donations for their “Lila Go Fund,” a resident activities fund started 15 years ago by the family of a passing resident named Lila. Residents use this fund to participate in activities in the community.
