Knights of Columbus presents donation to District 88 Transition Program

On Dec. 20, Knights of Columbus Juan Pablo II Council No. 14069 gave a monetary donation to benefit the District 88 Transition Program’s Perks & Possibilities Café.

That program helps individuals ages 19 to 21 who have disabilities learn life skills, obtain job training in a community setting and transition to life after District 88. Perks & Possibilities Café is one of the program’s job-training sites and is open from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Thursday inside the Addison Public Library.

“Knights of Columbus is a national program that raises funds to assist people who have intellectual disabilities,” said Chuck Seriano, Treasurer for Knights of Columbus Juan Pablo II Council No. 14069. “Perks & Possibilities Café is a tremendous asset in our community to help train young people to obtain employment. The Transition Program is top-notch and has excellent results, and we want to support this wonderful opportunity for students.”

Seriano added the money donated was raised through the council’s Tootsie Roll Drive.

An exceptional characteristic of Perks & Possibilities Café is it's a community project that has united intergovernmental agencies, local businesses and donors to support student learning. It opened in March 2011 and is a result of the support provided by the community.
