On Saturday, Oct. 25, the Little Sisters of the Poor hosted their annual celebration at Holy Family Residence, 2500 Adams Ave., Scranton, in honor of the birth of St. Jeanne Jugan, the Mother Foundress of their Congregation. During this event, Debbie Culver, CNA, Scranton, received the St. Jeanne Jugan Award. The St. Jeanne Jugan Award is given annually to an employee who exemplifies the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan and embodies a work ethic of humble service to the elderly poor.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving the elderly poor in Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors in creating a family spirit for the residents. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can live their last years in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
