San Jose Court #281 members were determined to provide some help for the people affected by the catastrophic flood that occurred earlier this year in San Jose. The members participated in several small fundraising activities to raise $500 to be used specifically for families forced out of their homes by this flood. A check was presented to Darren Seaton, Deputy Director of Sacred Heart Community Services, by members representing Court #281, Vice Regent Angie Carrillo, Treasurer Jessie McDonnell, Secretary Jo Ann Bjornstad, and Regent Theresa Cetani.
As California Catholic Daughters of the Americas, the group wanted to do what it could to demonstrate action of these words of Matthew 25:40, “Amen I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least of my brothers, you did for me.” Also, they wanted to help members of their own community through a time of great need.
In addition, as they began the new 2017-2018 year, they approved the donation of $200 to assist the people affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
If you would like more information about this group please contact Theresa Cetani at (408) 338-5607 or Terry Ludwig at (408) 264-5154.
We are a group of dedicated Catholic women who work under the direction of Our Lord to help others in need.
