Sons of Italy donates $4,000 to area charities

May 10, 2022 222

The Sons of Italy Lodge in Kankakee voted to donate $4,000 to various charities at the group’s recent meeting. The lodge usually makes charitable bequests during the Christmas season, but it did not get a chance to do that as meetings and activities were postponed because of COVID.

The group decided to fund two scholarships and make four $500 donations to local nonprofit agencies. Funded were:

• A $1,000 scholarship for a student at Kankakee Community College. The preference is to make the award to a student of Italian descent. The recipient is selected by KCC.
• A $1,000 scholarship through the Sons of Italy Grand Lodge for the state. The winner is selected in competition with other lodges.
