Tracy Pettinaro Crowley, a life-long resident of Wilmington and mother of three, is a member of a family that volunteers with and supports a number of charitable programs in Delaware, including Pancakes for Parkinsons, Race for Better Delaware, Great Dames and Celebrating Charitable Women. Tracy, who has also coached her child's soccer team, takes joy in pitching in when she sees a need.

image001Wilmington native Tracy Crowley recently jumped aboard a luxury cruise ship bound for Belize with a suitcase filled with two dozen calculators and several boxes of pencils, rulers and toothbrushes. That’s because Tracy and five other women from Wilmington, Bethany and towns in Maryland  signed up to participate in a Mission Ships program — a regular cruise ship with a twist. The Mission Ships community travels to locations around the world sharing the Gospel aboard the ship and doing good works in the communities they visit. Their trips are well-planned, and needy non-profit organizations eagerly look forward to their visit. Tracy and her team stocked up on desperately needed supplies for orphans at the Liberty Children’s Home in Belize. Tracy, who shares her story with us, begins by rounding up support from family and friends, filling her suitcase with donations, and making an e-mail list to stay in touch.
