Hi Mike,
Do you think you could ask if anybody would have any availability this Friday between 11:00 & 4:00 to help load the 12 families picking up their Thanksgiving boxes?  The other 25 families we are helping are being delivered by Operation Harvest on Saturday.
Thank you,Marcy

Hello Mike,
I hope you are well.

Our family became aware of a knight’s family from another area council that is in need.  The Hicks family have children that are in our homeschool group as well as St. Thomas More Academy in Raleigh.  Mark, the husband and father, has been beset with medical issues in recent weeks.  He just started a new job and, as such, he doesn’t have medical insurance in force now.
They are members of St. Joseph’s parish in Raleigh.  Mark is a 3rd degree knight with the Msgr. James P. Keaney Council #15551.  My wife and I have setup a PayPal collection to help with their financial hardship due to the rising medical bills: Hicks Family Assistance
