For the fifth year in a row, St. Thomas More Knights have taken a special collection to benefit hospitalized amputees.

Stationed at the exists with just a basket, a small sign and a smile, they were greeted with coins, dollars and checks. There were five collections over the weekend and the parish was very generous. The final tally? It was $3,638.54.

Our Assembly joins other assemblies in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Puerto Rico.  Last year a total of 363 hospitalized amputees were sent home to be with their families.  We appreciate the support and generosity of The Military Order of the Purple Heart for their matching our collection.
