Saint Agnes helps support women in need

November 18th, 2020 // Saint Agnes in the Community

Earlier this month, one of our community health partners, Cultiva La Salud, received a Social Influencer Grant to help ensure that students of Fresno County schools had access to healthy foods. When COVID-19 hit in March and the county mandated school closures, Saint Agnes asked Cultiva to repurpose its funding to help provide families with the essential resources they needed. Please take a few moments to watch this powerful video Cultiva created to showcase the impact of their new program. We’re proud to continue supporting the important life-changing work of Cultiva.
