KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS COAT GIVE AWAY
Thanks to all who donated, knitted, and helped make our Coats for Kids project a huge success. This year we purchase 72 coats and with your help each coat went out to needy child with a hat, gloves, and scarf.
Some went to the Omaha Police Department/Knights of Columbus coat give away effort, St. Vincent DePaul give away effort, School District 46, Louisville School District, a school in Millard School district, St. Joseph Church in Omaha (17th and Center ,Very Poor area) and the Stephen Center.
I cannot express the gratitude that I received from the people and kids that I delivered these wonderful warm winter coats. This could have not happened without your support.
On behalf of the St. Joseph Knights of Columbus, thanks and remember you all are a big part of what we do for the community and surrounding area.
