113 Wheelchairs Holy Spirit Council 8157
100 is the number of wheelchairs Holy Spirit Council 8157 will provide for disabled children at the CRIT Center in La Paz, Mexico as a result of our fundraising drive on Saturday & Sunday, March 12-13, 2022 for the American Wheelchair Mission. The official number was 99, but then I received a phone call from brother SK Art Senato, pledging to donate 1 more chair. Since then we have added 13 more wheelchairs.
As a council we deserve congratulations for a job well done. All our donors deserve our respect and gratitude for their overwhelming support and generosity. We had many single wheelchair donors and 12 Lithograph recipients.
A special thanks to our Pastor Fr. Eugene Okoli and to all the church staff for their support of this drive during this busy time in Lent, and for supporting the Knights at Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
Again, thanks to all my brother Knights who helped make this a successful fundraising drive.
