Food Basket Program
Food Basket Program
Thank you to all who participated in the 2016 Sacred Heart basket program!  Without the many Knights that contributed money to the basket fund and shoe fund, delivered baskets, helped in getting and distributing the food from Project Hope and gave presents from the Angel Tree, we could not help our neighbors in need.  A special thank you to those Knights that volunteered to deliver a basket.  We had many volunteers this year.  I tried to make sure everyone had he opportunity to deliver at least one basket.  If I missed you I’m sorry and if you volunteer again I will try to include you for a delivery.  These are a few interesting statistics:

- During the 2016 calendar year we delivered 36 baskets at Easter, 28 during the summer, 48 at Thanksgiving and 52 at Christmas for a total of 164 baskets.

- The families receiving the 164 baskets included 437 children and a total of 579 people helped.

- We received $10,050 in donations to the basket fund during 2016 and $1,478 in donations to the Village Outreach shoe fund.

- At Christmas we gave 456 presents, most of which were from the Angel Tree,and 127 shoe certificates to the children in the families receiving baskets.

- Approximately 91 volunteers delivered the baskets, many of whom delivered multiple baskets.

Thanks again for all of your support and we look forward to continuing to spread the Gospel of Christ by our actions in endeavors such as these.
