Supreme Knight Carl Anderson asked State Deputy Cameron Peck to contact the Little Sisters of the Poor ‘s Saint Joseph home and see what they need and try to help them out. The state deputy immediately contacted District Deputy Joe Carter and asked him head up this endeavor because Joe is very familiar with the Sisters in Louisville. Joe contacted Mother Paul and found out what she needed and then put out a plea to the district deputies in the Louisville area asking them to get their councils involved in obtaining the supplies needed. The Supreme Council is trying to source some of the more difficult items such as N95 masks, gloves, and non-contact thermometers.
Joe has delivered five hand truck carts full of supplies and is still collecting. They can still use toilet paper, paper towels, disposable exam gowns, masks, and gloves. If you would like to help donate to the cause, please contact Joe carter or Cameron Peck.
Council #15979 has arranged to donate 20 gallons of hand sanitizer to the Saint Joseph Home to help protect the health of the residents and the staff.
