As we look forward to the upcoming 2012/13 school year, we have been passed a very precious torch.
The St. Vincent’s Women’s Auxiliary has provided clothing for the boys for many years through Vinnie’s Closet. This special place on campus was named after a beloved Dominican nun at St. Vincent’s, Sister Vincent Marie Hurley, after she passed away in 1984.
The Women’s Auxiliary was organized in 1960 to help the sisters at St. Vincent’s and Vinnie’s Closet was their way of honoring the sisters by continuing to provide underwear, socks, shoes, pajamas, and much more to each boy when he came to St. Vincent’s to live.
The Women’s Auxiliary disbanded at the end of June and The Godmothers are honored to continue this wonderful programs. Vinnie’s Closet also houses the uniforms we provide to TMS students.
