Holy Spirit Wheelchair Drive

113 Wheelchairs Holy Spirit Council 8157 Update

100 is the number of wheelchairs our council will provide for disabled children at the CRIT Center in La Paz, Mexico as a result of our fundraising drive for the American Wheelchair Mission. The official number was 99, but a few moments ago I received a phone call from brother SK Art Senato, pledging to donate 1 more chair.


St. Michael the Archangel Wheelchair Sunday Update

St. Michael the Archangel Council #10523 in Grand Prairie and the Dallas Diocese held a very successful first ever Wheelchair Sunday over the weekend. $13,312 was collected at the Masses and $1,450 was received online, for a total of $14,762 for 98 wheelchairs. Since it is estimated that each wheelchair delivered changes and improves an average of 10 lives, they will make an immediate impact in the lives of 980 people.
