St. Jospeh's Food Pantry! It's no secret, some of our council knights have been involved with the food pantry for many years. So when one such Knight recently asked for some "Knight Power" to off load a truck containing some heavy cargo, Knights from St. Joseph's Council and St. Peter and Paul showed up to deliver the goods. Many Hands Make Light Work! In about an hour, the Knights off loaded a truck full of donated food supplies. Prior to departure, Council 5604 Grand Knight Terry Riley, presented a donation check of $1000.00 from the St. Joseph's Council to the Food Pantry. The Food Pantry, one of Manatee County's precious food banks, is experiencing a shortage of food and funds this year. So, this event and donation were a welcomed blessing for the food pantry. God expects his Knights to help the needy, and the Knights are on the job. Pray that we can fulfill the need and complete God's task. (More Photo's)
