Monsignor William M. Griffin Humanitarian Award and the Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award is given each spring by Catholic Charities recognizing those in the community who are devoted to helping and serving others.  Ss. Peter & Paul’s own George and Donna Wasilko will be receiving the Monsignor Griffin Humanitarian Award this year for their instrumental leadership in the “Back Pack Program” at the YMCA which provides lunches to needy children in the Moshannon Valley area.  For the past 3 years they have spent hours filling more than 300 backpacks each week along with delivering them to the Osceola Mills Elementary and even building a shelving unit for the backpacks to be put on.  They are truly making an impact in our community!  The recognition dinner will be held at the Altoona Grand Hotel on Wednesday, June 1st.   There are still tickets available from Catholic Charities if you would like to attend this event.  Congratulations Donna and George.
