Last month, Knights of Columbus Council 13832 of St. Francis of Assisi Church in Finleyville donated $500 to the local food bank.

Pat Trumpie was on hand after the food distribution in November to accept the check from Grand Knight Frank Kovscek on behalf of Ron and Rose Monich, who normally manage the Finleyville Food Pantry.
The initiative to help the Finleyville Food Pantry is just one of many projects that the Knights of Columbus takes on. In fact, the Knights of Columbus is dedicated to charity and service to those in need regardless of race, creed or color, worldwide. It’s a fraternal organization founded in 1882 in the US to assist brother members in financial need but has since grown to a worldwide charitable and service organization. Those two words, charity and service, pretty much defines the “Knights”. Funds go where most needed – disaster relief, food for families, habitats for the needy, Christian relief worldwide, educational assistance locally and abroad, hospitals, community projects – the list goes on and on.
The local community owes a great debt of gratitude to Rose and Ron Monich who so unselfishly donate their time to management of the Finleyville Food Bank. Many thanks Rose and Ron from a grateful community.
