KNIGHTS PARTNER WITH SFX SCHOOL FOR ST. VINCENT DEPAUL FOOD DRIVE.
Just prior to Thanksgiving last month, Council 2596 held its annual Food for Families drive, once again partnering with St. Francis Xavier School. Between the collection point at the church overseen by the Knights, and the effort at the school, we once again had a very successful food drive which resulted in dozens and dozens of well stocked grocery bags given away at the food pantry. Mr. John Pelusi from the SVdP on Lafayette Street has contacted the Council to express their gratitude for what he termed as an abundance of very much needed supplies. As you are aware, all of the local efforts to help feed those in an unfortunate circumstance are under significant pressure with this year’s increased demand.
Thanks to all our Knights who helped collect and move all these non-perishables for the distribution.
