Each year the IHM Knights of Columbus have their ‘Campaign to Help Those with Intellectual Disabilities’. Tootsie rolls are given out and donations accepted. Last year over $2000 was collected, and the money collected was given to Special Olympics of Delaware, The Mary Campbell Center, and Waggies by Maggie.
Donations are requested in front of several local business which support the campaign, and in the gathering area of our church after each Mass. The businesses were completed on 5/13, and $1200 was collected.
We thank for their continued support, the Dunkin Donuts at Graylyn Crest, the Giant in Concord Square, the Acme at F&N shopping center, the Acme in the Fairfax shopping center, and the Acme in the Branmar shopping center.
Also, thanks to the Knights and their families who spent their time on a rather cold and rainey day : Dave and Eileen Smith, Jack and Ann Devine, Ed and Sue Russ, Rick Gadbois and his granddaughter, Bernie White and his granddaughter, Martin McCarrick, Bob Curry, Jon Gatta, Tony Casio, Stan Rzucidio, Paul Hopkins, Ed Connolly, Lou LoBosco, and Herman Romero.
The IHM church solicitation will be after all the masses on 5/20-21.
