Texas Wheelchair Mission Report

Brother Knights,

Attached is the report of the Wheelchair Mission Donations by Diocese and Council that have been received as of May 31, 2024. Thank you so much and God bless you to the First Lady’s Initiative, 267 Councils, 1 Chapter and 9 Assemblies that donated a new jurisdiction record of $1,106,969 for 7,379 wheelchairs this fraternal year. Since it is estimated that each wheelchair delivered changes and improves an average of 10 lives, you will impact the lives of 73,790 people!

With only one month left in the fraternal year, the goal is to raise $1.2 million and provide 8,000 wheelchairs. Please submit your donations as quickly as you can. They must be received by July 1st to count for this fraternal year.

The goal for District Deputies is to have all their Councils participate in the Wheelchair Program by donating at least $150 for one wheelchair and have at least one of their Councils hold a Wheelchair Sunday.

Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.

Please make checks payable to American Wheelchair Mission and include the attached donation form in your mailing. To donate online, please visit amwheelchair.org/donate and select “Knights of Columbus” in the Campaign field and enter your Council Number in the Organization/Council field.

If you have any questions about the Wheelchair Program, need help with a Wheelchair Sunday, or need wheelchairs, please contact me in Plano at yankeesweb@tx.rr.com /214-405-8023 or Assistant Wheelchair Chairman Brian Nelson in San Antonio at abn091951@gmail.com/210-275-7921.
