The Mercy Foundation in Dallas, Pennsylvania, named an emergency grant in memory of Sister Virginia Hasson, RSM, who served on the Mercy Foundation Board since 2014. At the March 31, 2020, board meeting, Sister Virginia, reflecting her avid witness to the mission of Mercy, called the board to establish a fund for those who are struggling as a result of the coronavirus. The fund provides financial resources for ministries in Luzerne, Lackawanna, and/or Wyoming counties experiencing crucial and unexpected need at this time. The Mercy Foundation Board continues to be grateful to Sister Virginia for her contributions to Mercy ministries. Sister Virginia, who died in April, will be missed, but her legacy lives on.
