VOLUNTEER TO HELP A COUPLE IN NEED OF TRANSPORTATION. 15791

04/18/2020


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

ONE OF OUR COUNCIL BROTHERS VOLUNTEERED TO HELP A NEEDY COUPLE ATTEND CHURCH WEEKLY, AND TO OCCASIONALLY PICK UP GROCERIES AFTER MASS. LOCATION OF THIS ACTIVITY WAS WITHIN THE PARISH COMMUNITY, DURING THE MONTH’S OF DECEMBER 2019 INTO MARCH 2020. A REQUEST CAME FROM A BROTHER KNIGHT TO THIS BROTHER THAT A NEEDY COUPLE NEEDED HELP GETTING BACK AND FORTH TO WEEKEND MASS, AND A STOP AT THE GROCERY STORE ONCE EVERY OTHER WEEKEND. OUR COUNCIL BROTHER STEPPED UP TO THE REQUEST AND HELPED THIS COUPLE OUT, BY TAKING THE HUSBAND TO MASS ONE WEEKEND, AND THE WIFE THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND.THEY WERE HAPPY WITH ALTERNATING WEEKENDS. AS TIME WENT ON WITH THE COVID-19 VIRUS RESTRICTIONS, ADJUSTMENTS HAD TO BE MADE IN THE MASS SCHEDULE FOR THEM. IN CONVERSATING WITH THE COUPLE OF WHAT THERE NEXT STEP WOULD BE, OUR BROTHER FOUND OUT THAT THEY HAD A FAMILY MEMBER WHO LIVED DOWN SOUTH THAT WOULD PAY FOR THE INSTALLATION AND THE MONTHLY CHARGE FOR THE REST OF 2020. SO OUR COUNCIL BROTHER STEPPED UP ONCE AGAIN, AND HELPED THEM IN GOING ON LINE AND FINDING THE PARISH WEB-SITE, AND SHOWING THEM HOW TO ACCESS THE WEEKLY AND WEEKEND MASSES. WHAT A BLESSING THIS BROTHER WAS IN HELPING THIS SENIOR COUPLE IN NEED. AS FOR THE GROCERY STORE STOPS, THE COUPLE WAS DIRECTED TO A GROUP THAT CAME IN AND BROUGHT FOOD TO THEM EACH WEEK STARTING MARCH 21,2020. HELPING ONE ANOTHER AND THOSE IN NEED IS A GIFT FROM THE KNIGTHS OF COLUMBUS AND GOD IN THIS PARISH COMMUNITY.
