Buena Vista Knights support toy outreach
BUENA VISTA. Knights of Columbus Council No. 7752 at St. Rose of Lima Parish in Buena Vista presented Choose Life Toymakers with a check for $600 on April 14. The donation represented proceeds from their March Breakfast Burrito Express. Each month, the Knights choose a cause to support with their breakfast.
Choose Life Toymakers is a non-profit that makes small wooden toys with wheels to give to kids who need a smile. Since inception last year, this non-profit has made 1,900 toys, giving away over 1,500 of them.
“The Knights of Columbus heartily support the charitable mission of Choose Life Toymakers and were glad to help their cause,” said Knight Steve Kuennen said. “It also aligns with the Knights’ defense of human dignity at every stage of life.”
Choose Life Toymakers was started by St. Rose of Lima parishioner Mary Lee Bensman with the help of parishioner Bill Distel.
