St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters recently raised $375,000 at Women of Valor, our annual event celebrating honorees who are distinguished leaders in both their careers and communities. The event was hosted by Emmy Award journalist Ernie Anastos and included a keynote address from FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh. The funds raised help provide food and other critically needed items – including women’s hygiene kits – to our network of more than 40 food banks, food pantries, and shelters. To receive updates on future Women of Valor events, please contact us at
