Reggie and Sheila Willis from 1707 Grant Ave in South Plainfield life is a little bit easier today. On December 30th in 12 degree temperature and a heavy morning snow storm, the South Plainfield Knights of Columbus Council #6203, the Woodbridge Knights of Columbus Council #857 and members of the American Irish Organization joined together to come to the aid of a resident in dire need.
Reggie Willis who recently became wheelchair bound had no way of getting into his house, his wife Sheila contacted Bill Butrico for there help.
Instead of building a wooden permanent ramp like in the past, the South Plainfield Knights a few years ago brought an movable aluminum ramp that can be taken apart and re-built for quick turnaround time. This is the 3rd time this ramp has been used to help a needy resident in South Plainfield.
Building the ramp were the following Knights and support people - Mike Chomo, Sean Keaveney, Ed Thompson, Ed McSherry, Bill Butrico, Nick McGeehan, Walter Adenau, Mike Butrico, Jim Leathem, Adam Butrico, Joe McGeehan, Kevin Flanagan, James Butrico, Tom Walsh, Peter Guido, Joe Lammi, Steve Turrise, Derek Smith, Gerry Butrico, and Harold Bolton
Grand Knight Joe McGeehan would like to thank the everyone who helped in building the ramp as well the Woodbridge Knights of Columbus Council #857 and members of the American Irish Organization for their great collaboration on this project for this great cause
Father Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society at a time in the United States when Catholic immigrants were being forced to renounce their Faith in order to earn a livelihood for their families. Our mission as Knights of Columbus, is to keep Father McGivney's dream alive, to actively seek out Catholic men and invite them to be a part of our community of Christian family life through participation in our social and fraternal programs of service to our Church, community, and youth.
