Persons with Disabilities-DPD Drive 2022

Hello Brothers,

I wanted to give everyone the Results of our Fund Drive last weekend, for the, ”Persons with Disabilities”-DPD. Overall it was a big success !

First, THANK YOU, to All the Town people and ST. Thomas Parishioners, that were so generous and Donated Funds. Thank you also to the Business’s in Town, Lox, Stock and Bagel, Ding Dong Deli, Dunkin Donuts, and Frank’s Pizza. As well a Thank you to Father Ben and Father Dawid, for letting us stand outside after the Masses.

A BIG THANK YOU, to the Brothers who signed up to collect. We had a few who were “under the weather”, but we made it work. Especially, Jim Tarsitano, Vito Addotta, Dane Massaro, Al Nicol,George DeVito, Walter Endlicher, Mike Murphy, Dan Cioffi, Dan McCartney, Bill Johnson, Fred M., and Nick C..

Our Grand Total collected this year was, $3,850.17 ! (A last minute Donation from Fred, at tonight’s meeting. ) A little over $600 more raised than last year.

We started off with Generous Donations of $100 from Past GK Rick Hazard and a $200 donation from long time Member, Carl Johnson. Thank you both!

On Friday afternoon/evening we started at the Oak Ridge Rd. Jug handle and raised $1508. All of the donations outside the business went very well, and the Parishioners of St. Thomas donated $675 over the 3 Masses!

Thank you, Thank You again, for ALL that contributed and worked, to raise funds for our Friendsat DPD, as it is appreciated. In the next few weeks, I will send the Funds to the State K of C, who will take their share, and then send us back a Check, to donate to DPD.

Stay Well and Healthy, and God Bless.


Jim Z.
