The Knights of Columbus Council 386 recently presented a check to La Posada for $250. The check was donated by the Knights of Columbus Ohio State Council.
“One of the four tenants of the Knights of Columbus is charity,” says Jonathan Boyle, Knights of Columbus member. “Catholic Charities reflects a lot of what we stand for. We are happy to serve and be a partner that helps make a difference for people in our community.”
La Posada Family Emergency Shelter provides temporary housing and supportive services for up to 10 homeless families a night in Toledo. While there, families work with staff members to achieve self-sufficiency through programs that help them identify goals and build on their strengths to attain them.[singlepic id=868 w=320 h=240 float=right]
La Posada Housing Program Coordinator Jeanelle Addie said the money will assist with the renovation of guest bedrooms and other housing needs.
“We are very appreciative of the opportunity and of the Knights’ assistance to help us continue the work that we do,” said Addie.
“Knights of Columbus is about helping our community,” said Micheal Lambert, Knights of Columbus member. “We are called to serve, especially through the Church and our faith.”
