About Jon O'Connor

Hey Everyone- I am participating in a local bowling fundraiser for Poverello. The organization helps provide nutritious food for people with critical/chronic illnesses (like cancer, diabetes, HIV & kidney or heart disease). You can read more below and I hope you consider supporting me!


On Saturday, September 8th, 2018, I’ll be bowling to Fight Hunger with Poverello. Poverello serves nearly 3,500 individuals who are sick and experiencing food insecurity each year with healthy groceries. Will you join me in the fight against food insecurity for people experiencing serious illness? This year, Ryan White Part A program has cut eligibility in half. That means now, more than ever, we need your support to meet the same needs we met this past year.  Because we have the thrift store to cover some of our overhead, every dollar raised buys food for someone experiencing one of these critical or chronic illnesses. In addition, the Poverello Center offers: 

  • Cooking Classes
  • Full Service Gym
  • Onsite Nutritionist
  • Smoking Cessation Class 
  • Massage 
  • Haircuts for women and men
  • Chiropractic 
  • Acupuncture 
  • Mental Health Classes
I am asking caring people to sponsor my participation in the bowl a thon.  Your gift to this worthy cause is tax-deductible.  If you prefer to donate by check, please make checks payable to Poverello, and include my name in the memo line. For more information on Poverello and the lifesaving services provided, go to To support me, please click on the "Give Now" button, above.  Thanks again! Your gift helps treat and prevent illness through good nutrition.

Together, we are making a difference!
