People With Disabilities Fund Drive
Council: 9782 - WELLS
The People with Disabilities Fund Drive is always an enjoyable event for many of our members as it allows us to meet and speak to so many people either local or tourist as they donate to our organizations who support special needs children and adults as they prepare to enter our local restaurant or department store or as they leave the Masses on Saturday and Sunday. Our council is in a tourist area, so we always do our best to gather our members to collect during the 4th of July weekend as well as Labor Day and Columbus Day weekends with tremendous success. Many people who are from out of State will stop and tell us their stories of how either their families or friends who are Knights enjoy doing collections in their states and thanking us for what we do as they drop their donations into our collection baskets. This year we were able to donate $6,000 divided equally to three organizations who provide needed services to special needs children and adults.
