The Knights will be collecting Coats for Kids starting Saturday November 25th through December 10th. Please place coats in the collection bin in the fellowship hall near the restrooms. It will be marked Coats For Kids. Thank you for your help with this great cause.
The Coats for Kids primary goal is to help kids stay warm in the winter when a child’s family does not have the resources to adequately meet this need. A warm coat means a child can more realistically attend school, go to after-school programs, fit in with other children, play and do all the things that kids do to be kids. In a very real sense, a warm winter coat means mobility. Our mission is to make this seemingly small part of life a little bit easier for these families.
The Knights of Columbus launched the Coats for Kids program to ensure that every child in need would have access to a warm winter coat. Since the program started in 2009, councils have purchased and distributed more than 800,000 new winter coats to children throughout North America.
