A study desk and room decorations for Mary who loves to help others!

Posted Dec 6, 2017
While Mary's guardian is doing her best to provide a stable life for Mary and the other children, but because Mary is so self-sufficient, her needs are being put on the back burner given all of the challenges going on in her home. She shares a room with a three year old, and is quite often disrupted, day and night. This would give her her own place to study and store her own things. The pictures/decorations will inspire her to continue striving for what she wants to do – make a better life for herself, travel, and help others.

Mary is 15 years old and lives in Gloucester City, NJ

Mary’s Dad died when she was about 8 years old. Mary’s guardian has taken in multiple family members of hers due to various reasons . Last year, Mary’s guardian, was in the hospital for several reasons for a total of 6 months. Throughout all the upheaval, Mary has continued to shine and excel at school and in her personal life. She is level-headed, quiet, and maintains a sense of humor while living in the maelstrom that has become her personal life at home. Mary graduated from 8th Grade and was distinguished as the first person to be awarded the Catholic Diocesan Scholarship for all four years of high school at Gloucester Catholic High – an achievement no one in the history of Gloucester schools has ever been able to attain! She also received several other academic awards at that same graduation for scholastic achievement. Needless to say, her everyone is very proud of her!! She envisions herself becoming either a doctor or veterinarian when she grows up. She loves to read and watch the history and science channels, and is far more mature than her years.
