New York State Senator Mark Grisanti recently named Joseph Pasek as the sixth recipient of his “Veteran of the Month” recognition program.

A resident of the City of Tonawanda who served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam, Pasek is the sixth recipient of a monthly honor presented by Senator Grisanti following an application and nomination process coordinated by staff members in Grisanti’s veterans liaison office.

“I am pleased to recognize Joseph with this honor,” said Senator Grisanti, a member of the New York State Senate’s Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committees. “I commend him for his career of distinguished service and applaud him for his work as an active member of the Vietnam Veterans of America chapter in Tonawanda, where he serves on their board of directors. His community involvement is admirable, especially what he has done over the past two years with the ‘Come Fly A Kite For Homeless Veterans’ event.”

Catholic Charities Awarded $100,000 Grant from  Ralph C. Wilson Foundation

Catholic Charities of Buffalo has received a $100,000 grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation to support case management service coordination for military members and their families throughout the eight counties of Western New York. The grant reflects a commitment of $100,000 over the next three years.

The Ralph C. Wilson Foundation provides support to charitable and educational purposes with a mission to support non-profit organizations that make a tangible positive impact on people's lives.

Catholic Charities sought the funds in its effort to ensure that the organization is responding to the needs of the many current and past military members and their families in our communities. A Vision Military committee was begun more than a year ago and this support will help to further the group’s goal that clients and the community see Catholic Charities as responsive to the needs of servicemen and servicewomen.
