Heritage Gearing Up For ‘Giving Tuesday’

first_imgPixabay / Giving TuesdayGERRY – Heritage Ministries is getting ready to take part in ‘Giving Tuesday’ this week.Every year on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities by supporting their local not-for-profit organizations. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in.“We are so blessed by the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from our communities,” Lisa Haglund, Heritage President and CEO shared, “Like all of our holiday plans for this year, Giving Tuesday is all about bringing the joy and magic of the holidays to our residents.” “The seniors that we serve deserve the very best from us during this difficult time, and our teams have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to provide for our residents as we continue to promote the Heritage mission of promoting Hope, Dignity, and Purposeful Living to all those entrusted to our care,” furthered Haglund. “With the approach of the holidays, they are developing new and innovative ways for our residents to partake in some of the traditional activities they enjoy during what has been a very unprecedented and untraditional year. By donating on Giving Tuesday, friends of our Heritage communities, nationwide, will enable Heritage to provide additional resources that help our residents thrive in a loving and caring environment this holiday season.”Giving Tuesday donations will benefit all of Heritage’s residents nationwide, including The Green, (Greenhurst, NY), The Park, (Jamestown, NY), The Village, (Gerry, NY), The Homestead, (Gerry, NY), Orchard Grove and The Woodlands, (West Ellicott, NY), Vinecroft Retirement Community (Clarence Center, NY), Ives Hill Retirement Community, (Watertown, NY), Rolling Fields Elder Care Community (Conneautville, PA), Hearthstone Communities (Woodstock, IL), and The Kenney (West Seattle, WA).Those who are interested in joining Heritage’s Giving Tuesday initiative can visit their website at heritage1886.org/giving-tuesday to learn more.

Actress Lori Loughlin Accuses Prosecutors of Withholding Exculpatory Evidence

first_imgWhile other defendants have fallen on their swords actress Lori Loughlin continues to fight and is urging courts to release evidence that she claims could help prove her innocence in the ongoing college admissions scandal.In court documents filed Friday, attorney Sean Berkowitz, who represents Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, claims evidence that could be used to strengthen their case is being withheld by prosecution because it was deemed irrelevant and immaterial.By sharing FBI interview statements from William “Rick” Singer, the man at the center of the college admission scandal, the celebrity couple’s defense team hopes to show that Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, didn’t know their donations would be used as bribes. The motion asserts that not sharing the evidence prevents a fair trial.“But the Government appears to be concealing exculpatory evidence that helps show that both Defendants believed all of the payments they made would go to USC itself — for legitimate, university-approved purposes — or to other legitimate charitable causes,” read the motion, which was filed at Massachusetts’ U.S. District Court.The document continued: “The Government’s failure to disclose this information is unacceptable, and this Court should put a stop to it.”The United States Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts declined to comment.last_img read more

Hubble Telescope Celebrates 15th Birthday with Stunning Images

first_imgFifteen years old this month, the Hubble Space Telescope showed off new images of the Whirlpool Galaxy and Eagle Nebula (see ESA press release).  Engineers at JPL who built the WFPC-2 (Wide Field and Planetary Camera), the camera that took most of those famous images that adorn our walls and calendars, took great satisfaction today during a slide show of famous images and astronomical discoveries that Hubble has beamed to earth.  Though built under time pressure and political pressure to save the Hubble from its original optical flaws, WFPC-2 was installed during a risky shuttle rescue operation right as planned, and has worked perfectly for 15 years – longer than any other part of the telescope.    Though Hubble usually takes the spotlight because its vision is like ours, two other space telescopes are filling in knowledge about the wings of the optical spectrum: Spitzer in the infrared, and GALEX in the ultraviolet.Hubble is a great American success story that deserves far more press coverage than the usual daily retinue of crime stories and celebrity trials.  HST has brought us not only knowledge and science, but art.  Take this occasion to tour the Hubble Site and feast your eyes on things Galileo could not have dreamt of.  Congratulations to all the Hubble team: the universe will never be the same in our eyes thanks to this wonderful true story of intelligent design.    PS: [email protected] reported the possibility that some stars may have planets made of diamond.  Tell that to your kid after she sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and see if you can get a big-eyed Wow.(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

But they had pre-season with us, they trained with us many, many times. Last week they were training with us almost every day, so it’s not really something new for the boys.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
