KC #7613's wheelchair ministry needs your help

Jun 16, 2017

For many people, it is very difficult to move around. In fact, according to American Wheelchair Mission, it is estimated that more than 100 million people throughout the world are in need of a wheelchair but cannot afford one...nor can they be helped by canes, crutches, walkers or prosthetics. A wheelchair is their only hope for mobility.

Please take a few minutes to watch the following video, and you will witness the impact this special ministry makes in people's lives all over the world. The smiles you will see will make you smile!

If you wish to help provide wheelchairs to those in need with a monetary donation, you may simply place a check (payable to American Wheelchair Mission) in the collection basket the next time you come to Mass at St. Mark's.

Although an annual fundraiser is conducted at our parish, the wheelchair ministry is ongoing, and contributions can be made at any time.

A donation of $150 will purchase one wheelchair for someone in need, but a donation in any amount will make a difference. For more information, contact Sam Szalwinski at (210) 496-6310.
