Leave No Neighbor Behind

By Vinh Le GK-Council 16546

Vol. 4, 2016-2017

Like many Knights of Columbus Councils throughout the country participating in the Leave No Neighbor Behind Programs during this pandemic, our Council #16546 in Garland, Texas took on the challenge to distribute and deliver dried food to families in need. On a rainy Saturday, May 16, our Chaplin Father Paul, Brothers and their families help to package food and load them into the trunks of cars as people drove through the parking lot It was quite a task to keep the flow of traffic moving, coordinating the placement of food into the trunks, and minimizing the amount of water getting in to the trunks. For those that could not make it, Brothers delivered the food to their homes. It was a success when you saw people driving off smiling and waving to us with thanks.

The true meaning of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity of the Knights came out during this LNNB drive. This was made possible with the generous donations from our parish, the many Brothers and volunteers who stepped out into the rain without hesitation to load the food or delivered them

May God and Our Mother Mary continue to bless and protect ALL of us as we struggle through this pandemic time.
