In May, Support Our Aging Religious (SOAR!) generously awarded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur,California, a $25,000 grant to be used toward the purchase of a handicapped-accessible van. The van will be used to transport Sisters to their medical, dental and physical therapy appointments. This type of van is essential for transporting our wheelchair-bound Sisters and would make transportation much easier for many of the other Sisters, including the Sisters who currently use walkers.
