THE YEARLY THANKSGIVING BASKET PROGRAM. 15791

12/01/2021


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

FIVE BROTHER KNIGHTS FROM OUR COUNCIL ALONG WITH TWENTY-THREE PARISHONERS WORKED HAND AND HAND IN COLLECTING DONATED FOOD FROM THE CHURCH, BRINGING IT TO THE CHURCH HALL AND SORTING OUT ALL THE ITEMS FOR DELIVERY. FOOD WAS ALSO PURCHASED FROM AREA STORES USING $1,200 OF DONATED GIFT CARDS AND CASH. THIS PROGAM STARTED THE FIRST WEEKEND OF NOVEMBER AND CONCLUDED WITH DELIVERY ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 22. THIS YEAR 37 FAMILIES WERE GIVEN A FOOD BASKET. THIS HAS BEEN A VERY SPECIAL EVENT FOR US AS KNIGHTS ONCE AGAIN THIS YEAR. IN FACT, THIS IS OUR EIGHTH ANNUAL EVENT IN SUPPORT OF THIS PARISH PROGRAM. A NUMBER OF BROTHER KNIGHTS DONATED CAN GOODS, AND SEVERAL TURKEYS TO THIS YEAR’S BASKET PROGRAM. IT WAS SO REWARDING TO SEE THE FACES ON THOSE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO RECEIVED THE BASKETS THIS YEAR. WE MUST ALSO THANK THE LOCAL FOOD PANTRY FOR THEIR KIND DONATIONS ALSO. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING ON THE CHRISTMAS BASKET PROGRAM NEXT MONTH. THANKING GOD ONCE AGAIN FOR THESE MANY GIFTS AT THANKSGIVING TIME.
