October 1, 2017, Charity Breakfast
The Family of Man Council will host their next Charity Breakfast on October 1, 2017, between the 7:30 and 11 :30 AM Masses. Our charity for this month is Amy's Army (http://www.amysarmyva.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to increase awareness, support medical research, and provide financial support to Northern Virginia women affected by any cancer. Helping “women affected by any cancer” means that the woman herself may not have cancer – she may be the caregiver of a family member or friend with cancer.
One of the cornerstones of Amy’s Army, and what distinguishes it from other non-profit groups, is their Grant Program. Amy's Army offers grants to applicants for a variety of expenses: medical bills associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, basic living expense emergencies, and non-medical expenses related to medical treatment to women in Northern Virginia.
Please join us to help this worthy cause. Free will donations for the breakfast are accepted at the door, and the net proceeds will be sent to this charity.
