Michael “Mike” Vasaturo serves as vice president of New Haven Terminal, Inc., where he supervises the organization’s financial, operational, and human resources services. Apart from his work, Michael Vasaturo supports a number of charities, including the Knights of Columbus.

Over the past year, the Knights of Columbus organization has provided almost $2 million in relief funding for Christians and other religious groups in the Middle East that have been victimized by ISIS. When the Knights of Columbus decided to contribute the money, organization CEO Carl Anderson said it was important for the Knights to go beyond mere words in fighting on behalf of the religious groups.

Over the past year, this funding has helped keep medical centers in Iraq up and running. The money also provided relief aid for Syrian Christians affected by the civil war, particularly those in the Aleppo area.
