The Sisters of the Holy Family support this local anti-violence program:

You may have heard on the radio or news about the Pepsi Refresh Project. Pepsi is giving away $1.3 million every month in an effort to support those who generate innovative and optimistic ideas to move communities forward. The ideas that receive the most votes will win grants from $5,000 up to $250,000.

June will be SAVE’s chance to win $250,000
to help fund our shelter programs. You may recall that due to the state budget, SAVE’s funding was decreased by $200,000 this year, and next year will be the same.

The good news: It’s easy. Just a few clicks with your mouse can help us be the winner.

The bad news: It’s hard.  This is a popularity contest among more than 1000 projects from across the country. In order for SAVE to win, we will need you, and all of your friends, and all of their friends, and all of their friends to vote in the month of June for SAVE.
