Knights Charity Breakfasts Coming Soon!
CHARITY FUNDRAISING BREAKFASTS!
The Knights of Columbus are preparing to kick off their monthly Charity Fundraising (formerly known as Pancake) Breakfasts next Sunday, October 2, from 8:30 -11:30am in the Brown-McCarthy Auditorium. We have selected charities that reflect both the outreach of our Catholic Community and the Knights of Columbus principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity. We hope you will assist us in supporting these charities by joining us for these Charity Fundraising Breakfasts between now and next summer.
Our October charity is the Stroke Comeback Center. The Center, located in Vienna, focuses on providing affordable treatment and support to people dealing with a broad range of communication problems as a result of stroke or brain injury. Information about the Center can be found on the Family of Man web site at www.kofc7566.us with additional information at the Center web site at www.strokecomebackcenter.org.
Designated charities for the remainder of the Charity Fundraising Breakfasts are:
· Culmore Clinic (November 2016)
· BritePaths (formerly Our Daily Bread) (December 2016)
· Gabriel Project (January 2017)
· Divine Mercy Care (February 2017)
· Support our Aging Religious (SOAR) (March 2017)
· Nazareth Farm (April 2017)
· Friends of the Orphans (May 2017)
· Montana de Luz (June 2017)
Over the years, the Knights of Columbus Family of Man Council at this parish has raised over $70,000 for more than 25 charities. Other than the expense for food, all of the proceeds generated through your contributions go directly to the charities identified each month. No other funding is provided to the Knights for these worthy charities. We donate our time and effort to prepare, cook and serve breakfast to you as a way of showing devotion to the mission of charity and unity.
Please help us assist those in need by joining us at the upcoming Charity Fundraising Breakfasts. Your consistent support makes a difference. The Knights have invited a representative of the featured charity to be present to offer more information on their organization and programs. What a great way for you and your family to start your day - with an excellent breakfast, sharing in fellowship and donating to worthy programs and projects.
The Knights have established a total donation goal for the charities listed above. Check out our bulletin board outside the auditorium and watch your donations accrue on our Charity Fundraising thermometer. Your help is needed and appreciated, and together we can make a difference!
