OLW’s Deacon Don, In the News

Posted on January 30, 2024 by Published by

Our Lady of the Wayside’s Deacon Don Grossnickle was recently featured in a Daily Herald article, “Suburban charity calls on churches this Lenten season to help fund clinic farms in Uganda.

The article highlighted Deacon Don’s MicroFinance Alliance Africa Projects Foundation (MAAPF), which raises funds that enable impoverished villages in East Africa to start small agribusinesses that, in turn, use the profits to build healthcare clinics for the indigent.

To date, MAAPF has established 15 farms and hopes to increase that number to 26 in the future. “Christians are obligated and challenged to do almsgiving during Lent,” said Grossnickle, who hopes suburban congregations will consider the foundation’s clinic farms a worthy cause this year.
