Since 2003, the Knights of Columbus have sponsored the delivery of tens of thousands of wheelchairs to people in need, from our veterans, children and many others who suffer from lack of mobility simply due to the lack of wheelchairs. Due to the efforts of our Order, we have delivered wheelchairs to people in need all over the world, showing exemplary compassion, generosity, and dedication by bringing mobility to those less fortunate.
The state wheelchair fund was established to respond to this need in Georgia. For $150.00, the cost of one wheelchair, we can greatly improve the life of a veteran or others within our state. I am asking all 111 councils to consider donating at least $300.00 towards the purchase of two wheelchairs towards this vital project in their annual charitable donations. This will help us fulfill the State Deputy’s promise that if anyone in the state of Georgia needs one we will make sure they get one. Our mission is to help veterans in our VA Hospitals, children, teens, and adults in order to put a smile on their faces and to have their prayers answered.
However, this effort is open to all brother knights personally who wish to make a tax-deductible donation to this cause, regardless the amount. Make donations payable to:
