Sue Pappalardo Fund - Alternate Council Project

Our member Sue Pappalardo contracted West Nile Virus in early September and has been hospitalized ever since. We praise God for the slow but steady recovery she is making, but the effects have been debilitating, and she still faces weeks and possibly months of ongoing therapy. A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family to help with the expenses of Sue’s protracted hospitalization and can be accessed by clicking here. Helping with Sue’s ongoing expenses is also an alternate Council Project of the Month for October. Gifts made to St. John’s and designated for the Pappalardo family using a green Above and Beyond offering envelope will be given to the family at the end of this month.
