Vicky Cornell, wife of the late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, has been appointed a member of the Children's Council of the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (The NYSPCC).
She will also hold the post of the Vice Chair of the 2018 Spring Luncheon, the Society's annual fund raiser.
Cornell heads the Chris & Vicky Cornell Foundation, which she formed with her late husband in 2012 to support children who are impacted by the traumas of foster care, poverty, addiction, child abuse and neglect.
Mary L. Pulido, executive director of NYSPCC, said the Society is impressed by Cornell's passion for helping children and families who have been impacted by child abuse and neglect.
Cornell said she is excited to join the organization for children, which is the first child protection agency in the world.
