Enterprising Grandpop Back Again
Back for a second year, James Brady, 86, of Cape May, NJ, planted zinnia seeds meticulously harvested from his garden last year. These produced a variety of blossoms this year which were arranged in jars donated from neighbors’ kitchens and put out on display: available for free will donations to the Little Sisters of the Poor in Philadelphia. James was first connected with the Little Sisters of the Poor when his granddaughter, Lucy, volunteered and worked with the Sisters at Holy Family Home about 5 years ago. With donations, prayers and spreading awareness of their mission, “Grandpop” has been supporting the Little Sisters ever since! Now, he has taken up, again, active participation in fundraising– sowing the seeds, and watching them grow, preparing the flowers for “sale,” and sending the profit to Holy Family Home. This now annual summertime work is so special for James as well as his neighbors, who get to enjoy the garden, and passersby who take a bouquet to go!
