American Wheelchair Mission


Since 2003, the Knights of Columbus has funded the delivery of tens of thousands of wheelchairs around the world, and right here at home. Thousands of veterans and their families across the United States in need of wheelchairs have received new mobility, and honor the Knights with their thanks and prayers.

Since 2007, Knights across the U.S. have been having "Wheelchair Sunday" parish drives to raise funds for the delivery of wheelchairs. Beginning with Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Pasadena, California where Fr. Gerard O'Brien coined the phrase "Wheelchair Sunday," this program has spread to several states and is catching on quickly.

The first 5 parish drives in Southern California raised enough money to sponsor the delivery of 1,000 brand new wheelchairs and added more than 150 new Knights to the local membership.

Knights and their families are getting involved in a hands on life changing mission that allows children, teens and adults around the world to have their prayers answered with the gift of hope, freedom, dignity, independence...a wheelchair!
