Pope John Paul II


    "While it is true that the taking of life not yet born or in it's final stages is sometimes marked by a mistaken sense of altruism and human compassion it cannot be denied that such a culture of death, taken as a whole, betrays a completely individualistic concept of freedom, which ends up by becoming the freedom of "the strong" against the weak who have no choice but to submit.

    Food For Families

    KofC Jars with Yellow Lids

     

    The Washingtonville Knights of Columbus have launced their Food for Families program, which has been implemented to support Country Kids 4U Food Pantry. With the cooperation of local businesses, clear glass jars with yellow lids have been placed in their stores. All funds collected will go directly to Country Kids to help with the purchase of food.

    Knights program chairman, Bill Preston, met with the pantry's Directors in late January. Given an explanation of how the program works and a tour of the building, Bill knew the Knights had to help. "John, Peter and Valerie have put together a great organization. It's a safety net for so many people in our community who have been impacted by events beyond their control. We feel privledged to be able to help."

    Knights Sean Cunnane, Frank Roughneen, Sal Pineda, Danny Munoz, Joe Prunty, Kevin Strommer and Viz Cordero help Bill and all the Country Kids volunteers load and unload vans full of food on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at the pantry.

    We'd like to thank the following buisnesses for their willingness to help. If you'd like a 'Jar with a Yellow Lid' placed in your store, please call Bill Preston at 845-667-4038.
