Adopt-a-Family

Adopt-a-Family

St. John the Evangelist Knights of Columbus Council 7515 is happy to announce the “Adopt-A-Family” program for food donations for this year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets.  Here is how the program works:

  • During the weekends of October 21 – 22 and October 28 – 29 the Knights of Columbus will have a table in the vestibule of the Church.  At the table we will have a list of the families that can be adopted.
  • If you would like to Adopt-A-Family, simply decide the size family for which you would like to provide dinner (we have families that range in size from 1 to 15 people) and come to the table.  Please note that you will adopt the same family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • We will then help you select a family from our list of about 100 families.  We will also provide a list of suggested items to purchase.  The Knights of Columbus will provide the turkey.
  • You bring your Thanksgiving food to the school before and after the Masses the weekends of November 4 – 5 and November 11 – 12.   It would be great if you could put your food in boxes.
  • You bring your Christmas food to the school before and after the Masses the weekends of December 9 – 10 and December 16 – 17.   Again, it would be great if you could put your food in boxes.

Thanks for supporting this activity.  Please contact Tom Rossi (215.295.1654) if you have any questions or if you know of any families that may need some assistance this year.
