Knights in Action

Following up on a busy first two months of fall- with St. Benedict Council donating thousands of dollars and many hours to those in vulnerable from three major hurricanes as well as the continuing battle to save the unborn babies the abortion; Knights of Council #9056 turned to helping those in our community in need.

 

First, we enjoyed our annual support to the Southeastern VA Special Olympics Fall Championships.  Our Council was privileged to be responsible for delivering drinks, snacks and and later, lunch to the various venues (soccer, bocce, golf, roller skating, volleyball, bowling) throughout Virginia Beach for over 1,000 athletes!

 

This past Friday, we turned to the community support responsibilities, with Knights unloading cars, boxing food, and loading the truck for the Southeastern VA and Eastern Shore Foodbank.  The annual Mayflower Marathon takes places on the weekend prior to Thanksgiving in Pembroke Mall, and we enjoyed serving along several other community groups in this vital mission,
