Brother Marco Mendoza donated $1000 to our council to purchase wheelchairs for the Veteran Wheelchair Fund. The Knights of Columbus and the Global Wheelchair Mission have teamed up to help bring wheelchairs to veterans who lack freedom of mobility. For every $150 received by the Global Wheelchair Mission, It can deliver a brand new wheelchair to a disabled veteran. Marco is a former Naval Officer and veteran who deeply cares about our disabled veterans. Thank you Brother Marco for your generous donation to our disabled veterans in need. Vivat Jesus!
