Rick Koenig was a friend and supporter of Bishop Sullivan Center. Born on Christmas Day, it was fitting that Rick would become a selfless man who gladly gave to others, always putting their needs before his own.
On January 11, 2020 Rick Koenig suffered a spinal cord injury. Less than a year later that injury would take his life at the age of 62.
To memorialize Rick’s goodness, Bishop Sullivan Center offers a new service through its food pantries.
Often when mothers come for food to one of our two food pantries, they ask if we have diapers, formula or other items for their babies. Typically, we do not.
So, we decided to set up some shelves in each of our pantries and fill them with items for infants. We have a sign over these shelves that reads, “Rick’s Kids.”
Rick was a father of three, a grandfather of five, so kids held a special place in his heart. The items on the Rick’s Kids’ shelves will be given to low-income parents for their children. Unbeknownst to these children they, too, are “Rick’s Kids.”
If you would like to make a donation to “Rick’s Kids,” the money will go toward diapers, formula, wipes and baby food for low-income children.
