19th Annual ABBA Center Banquet. 15791

05/24/2022


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

One of our council members, his wife and daughter participated in the 19th annual ABBA Center Program which was put on at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland on May 13, 2022. For a number of years, we have been supporters of the ABBA Center and what they do to help un-wed mothers, and their babies who come to them for help. The program this year was one of the best we attended and were extremely impressed with the guest speakers which presented a segment on reaching out to these mothers, fathers, and babies with nine different support programs. This year this banquet raised for the ABBA Center $100,214.00. We are pleased with their most blessed gifts, and we are also blessed to know that our donation is a part of the funds collected. Since the founding of our council in 2013 we have been a supporter of this fine group thru our Annual Baby Bottle Drives. Thank you, GOD, for this special day for the Babies and their parents in need of the ABBA Center’s Care.

Family Violence Project

05/23/2022


Council: 334 - AUGUSTA

Project Description:

I am a member of the Board of Directors for The Family Violence Project. I have been a member for at least 5 years if not more. The Family Violence Project supports victims of Domestic Violence in many ways. A shelter is available to victims who are fleeing a domestic violence situation and have no other safe place to go.
Court advocacy is also provided as a guide for the victims as they navigate what could be an intimidating legal system.
Training is provided to volunteers who wish to support the victims.
Food of high quality along with baby needs such as wipes and diapers is provided for the residents. I am proud that as a Knight I arranged for these supplies through my volunteerism at the Augusta Food Bank.
The Board acts as a guide for the staff and director as they pursue their many duties.
I want to assure the Officers of the Knights both on the District Level and State Level that this agency is not in conflict with the Knights and is not a questionable organization.
I am proud of the work that the Project and the Board performs. We need more Knights to get involved with the various shelters and Projects in this State. The actual time that I put im
n today was 1 hour and 20 minutes.
