“This will allow women in crisis the opportunity to shop for their children for this holiday season,” said Peggy Lennon, MSN, executive director, Surgical Services. “It was impressive to see our nursing leaders come together to support women and families in need.”

Kathleen Seiden, chief advancement officer, YWCA Greenwich, said the organization was grateful for the donation.

“By giving a gift card, victims of domestic abuse are empowered to make purchasing decisions for themselves and their children,” she said.

Domestic violence is the top reported violent crime in Greenwich.
