Shirley C., 85, Eighty Four, PA

Shirley Calabria, 85, a resident of Eighty Four, Pennsylvania, had her very simple wish for a Giant Eagle gift card granted, thanks to our Washington County chapter. Shirley is a widow who lives on a very fixed income. The Giant Eagle card will assist with co-pays on her prescription medicines. Shirley and her husband, Donald, were very active in their community before he passed away in 2009. They spent many years conducting Bible study at the Mel Blount Youth Home. And, in addition to raising their own five children, they fostered 22 babies from Bethany until they could be adopted. Her simple wish was granted during a ceremony also attended by her son and daughter-in-law on November 20th.
