Knights of Columbus deserve pat on the back

Letter to the Editor

On behalf of The Arthritis Society, I would like to express my gratitude to the dedicated men and women of the Knights of Columbus Council in Rainy River, for their unwavering support during our Door to Door Canvass.

Congratulations on raising $3,212.00 for programs, services and research that will directly benefit your community. My sincere thank you goes out to all the individual volunteer canvassers who gave of their private time to go door to door to raise money for Arthritis Research. Thank you to those who make in memoriam donations in memory of a loved one who suffered with Arthritis. These precious gifts ensure care for so many. Than you to those businesses & staff who participate in Dress Down Days and designate corporative funds to the Arthritis Society. My sincere gratitude to the loyal community groups such as the Royal Canadian Legions, we value your commitment to our cause. At last special thank you to the many employees who designate the Arthritis Society as their charity of choice for payroll giving. Than you for your hard work, your commitment and your strong belief in the good work the Arthritis Society does in this community to benefit local residents.

It is important for our community to know that your donations aren’t just pooled somewhere down south. Your donations have significant impact on your fellow citizens. Individuals with arthritis in the north have efficient access to cutting edge medications, therapies and services as a result of the work of the Arthritis Society and your donations. Effective programs and services are administered across s the north by the Arthritis Society, providing no cost physiotherapy and counseling on arthritis issues. Your dollars make a difference locally. On behalf of the more than 1 in 4 people in the north that rely and benefit from your donations, we thank you.
