The WCCW, through their Mary’s Fund, partners with organizations outside the US who strive to make a better life for women and children. Linda Wegher, President of the Sheridan WCCW, proposed that the Merciful Love Connection be given the 2014 Mary’s fund. It was approved by the State board.

From September 2013 to October 2014, the women of the WCCW will sponsor bake sales, rummage sales, and special events to raise money for their Mary’s Fund. At their national convention in 2014, Sr. Yvette will be invited to receive the fruit of their labors.  The Mary’s Fund will be used for the “Preparation for Independent Living” project at the Refuge.
