Knights of Pythias donates to Home for Hunts

Revelstoke Knights of Pythias donates $2,000 to Home for the Hunts project.

Contributed

The Knights of Pythias have very generously donated $2,000 towards the Home for the Hunts project to support the purchase of specialized assistive and accessibility devices that Pauline Hunt requires for her safety and  independence within the home.

Hunt has ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and the project aims to renovate her home to make it wheelchair accessible.

Kevin Coulter of the Knights of Pythias noted that the Knights has raised $250,000 in funds over 10 years to support the people of Revelstoke with their special needs.

The Knights of Pythias always welcomes new members to join them in their worthwhile endeavours. Please call Ray Cretelli at (250) 837-3769 if you are interested in becoming a part of their group.
