Pernet was honored to be recognized as the non-profit of the night during the WooSox opening week at Polar Park. We enjoyed the opportunity to officially welcome the team to the neighborhood and look forward to a continued partnership between our organizations. Go Sox!
We (SPUD, CBL, and GCR) thank you tremendously for welcoming Holy Cross volunteers into your organizations this semester and year. We are very aware of how difficult managing virtual volunteers can be and we are grateful for the time you spent working with Holy Cross students. From what we have heard from our students, it is clear that they had meaningful experiences, built important relationships, and appreciated how virtual volunteering kept them connected to our city. These experiences, relationships, and feeling of connection wouldn't have been able to happen without you -- your willingness, your creativity, and your hospitality. We are hopeful that you and your community members found the virtual volunteering experience worthwhile and meaningful, as well.
As a small token of our appreciation, this week on social media we will be running a gratitude campaign for our community partners. We asked students to share their words of thanks and have turned those into social media posts for our wider community. Follow our community relations instagram account this week to see all of the posts. We have shared some below, as well.
We look forward to the time that we will be able to properly thank you in person!
Pernet Virtual Baby Shower
I recently read a meme on Instagram from @thebalanceafterbaby that said, "We spend too much time worrying about if a new baby is sleeping well, eating enough, or crying too much and not enough time worrying if a new mom is sleeping well, eating enough, or crying too much." I believe this is part of the reason we celebrate Mothers Day. A day where we can shower mothers with attention, appreciation and love.
This Mothers Day, I urge you to take a moment and honor a mother or mothers in your life. Give them a call, a visit (if it is possible), give them a card, a gift and let them know that they are special.
I also ask you to think of mothers in need who come to Pernet looking for food, infant formula, baby clothes, laundry soap, everything for their child and not thinking of themselves. Give a gift to these mothers. Give a gift in honor or in memory of a mother in your life.
You can give a gift in different ways
1. Purchase an item from our Amazon Wish List
2. Donate online
3. Purchase baby items or gift cards and drop them of at 237 Millbury Street, Worcester, MA 01610
4. Send a check to

Your donations will go towards helping her and other mother-to-be who find themselves choosing between their own needs and the needs of their babies.
