The Knights of Columbus councils have supported District 88 students through initiatives such as generously donating to the Best Buddies club at Addison Trail, which focuses on enhancing the lives of people who have an intellectual disability, the District 88 LIFE Transition Program and the Transition Program’s Perks & Possibilities Café. That program helps individuals ages 19 to 21 who have disabilities learn life skills, obtain job training in a community setting and transition to life after District 88. The Perks & Possibilities Café is one of the program’s job-training sites and is located inside the Addison Public Library.

Anyway’s also serves as a job-training site for Transition Program students and has provided gift certificates for District 88 Foundation and Partnership for Inspired Education (PIE) Foundation events as well. Anyway’s also provides gift certificates for our students who receive the 88’s Best award, which honors 18 students each school year for reaching their personal best in academics, highly improved performance, extracurricular activities, service work or performing arts/electives.
