Feed My Starving Children

What a good looking group
81 boxes (over 17,000 meals) were measured, sealed, and packed in the Schaumburg facility during our shift. This will feed 48 kids for an entire year. Our boxes were sent to Haiti.

Proper measurements of the portions is very important

Chicken, veggies, soy, rice
Our council does this once a quarter. It's a fantastic family activity. Have your kids invite a friend, so more people learn about the program.

A Letter of Thanks

May 29, 2012

Dear Saint Margaret Mary Knights of Columbus:

I will be leaving Saint Margaret Mary School on June 8th. Before I left I had to
write to you.

I have never worked with a group of Knights like Saint Margaret Mary is blessed
to have. You support the church, school, and, most importantly, each other. Your
kindness and generosity is unbounded.

Our Knights have been very generous monetarily to the school. What would we do
without the storage building? But, you didn’t write a check and stop there. You
painted, cooked, moved bookcases, picnic tables etc, etc. I cannot begin to count
the times I have heard “ What can the Knights do for the school?”

I have lived and worked in several parishes in two states. . Never have I seen a
group like yours. I feel honored to have known you and blessed by the example you
set for all.

May God bless all of you. I will always remember your kindness and spirit.

Very sincerely,

Sue Snyder
