2016 HOLIDAY FOOD BASKET PROGRAM
2016 Maple Shade Business Donation Letter
2016 Council # 5714 Thanksgiving & Christmas Holiday Food Basket Campaign Underway!
Over the past decade, the Knights of Columbus from Council # 5714 have collected food and monetary donations in an effort to provide needy Maple Shade residents a complete Holiday Meal for their entire family. Hunger is a on going problem, not just in our local community, but around the world. This program aims to make the Thanksgiving and Christmas season just a little brighter and happier for those who struggle on a weekly basis and especially around the Holidays. Through the generosity of Maple Shade Business Community, the Our Lady of Perpetual Help PREP Program and individuals and families connected to the Knights of Columbus, Council # 5714 was able to prepare and distribute 25 Food Baskets for EACH of the two Holiday's last year. THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE IN 2015!
Once again this year, we are trying to accomplish the same thing. The 2016 Program is well under way. We can use the support of each and every business, family, and individual in and around the Township of Maple Shade. If you can spare a couple of canned goods or non-perishable food items or make a monetary donation to the fund, our Council will be able to replicate last years results and possibly, extend even further our Charitable reach!
Can we count on your support again this year? If the answer is Yes, we offer our heartfelt appreciation. If you cannot, then please offer us your prayers that our Heavenly Father will Bless our work and provide us the strength and ability to do His work!
God Bless our Council; God Bless our community and God Bless our Country!
