Local non-profit agency Project Self-Sufficiency will receive $1,000 on April 7th as part of HSN Cares’ annual $1,000 a day giveaway campaign.

HSN Cares selected Project Self-Sufficiency from a pool of thousands of entries after being nominated for the award by Cheryl Ross, who shared with HSN her inspiring story of courage and dignity as she progressed from Project Self-Sufficiency participant to serving on the organization’s Board of Directors.  “Project Self-Sufficiency helped me and my children through a challenging time with respect, dignity, and most of all guidance,” explained Ross, a mother of four who now works for the Newton School District.  “Ten years later, after going to college, getting a job and becoming self-sufficient, I joined the Board of Directors.  Now I am humbled and honored to give back to an organization that changed our lives.”
