Support TRAC

Jerry Sullivan Memorial Fund: On March 24, 2015, Jerry Sullivan, Director of CitySquare’s Transition Resource Action Center (TRAC), passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. The Jerry Sullivan Memorial Fund was created by the family of Jerry as a way to let his legacy at CitySquare, and passion for serving at-risk youth, live on.

 

In honor of Jerry's 50th birthday, his parents collected

groceries for the TRAC Food Pantry, along with donations

for the Memorial Fund. What an incredible tribute to Jerry

and his memory!
