November 10, 2014
Our Council Knights really stepped up to make the 2014 Knights of Columbus and St. Elizabeth Seton Parish Turkey Drive a grand success. I am proud to report that both Council participation and donations were up significantly over last year. On behalf of the New Hampshire Food Bank and the hundreds of New Hampshire families that will benefit from your generosity this Thanksgiving, a huge “Thank You”. Our success was due to the cooperative efforts of our Council Knights and our supportive St. Elizabeth Seton Parishioners.
Here are the turkey numbers:
• K of C Council 12988 Contributions $6,810.00
• Parishioners’ Contributions $3,690.00
• Total Contribution to the NH Food Bank $10,500.00
• Council Participation 75%
Thanks to all of my Brother Knights for your prayers, contributions and time in staffing the doors for our November 8 & 9 Mass collections. I also want to acknowledge a growing source of support from outside groups in our food efforts. They include:
The Rotary Club of Bedford
The Bedford Men’s Club
SnapDragon & Associates
Bartley Financial Services
Bedford Dental Associates
Granite State Cabinetry
Nurturing this kind of support has unlimited upside potential in future campaigns.
The check presentation ceremony will be held at the New Hampshire Food Bank during the business meeting on November 12. The money will provide a fine Thanksgiving meal for many of our New Hampshire neighbors.
I hope that you and your families have and blessed and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.
2014 Turkey Drive Chairman
