The 2017 “Coats4Kids” campaign is now over and has been branded as a huge success.
With the help of more than 20 local partners, the Knights of Columbus have secured eight dozen brand new winter coats for at-risk youths in our community.
This will bring some relief to struggling families in our community this Advent.
This is a large feat that could not be accomplished without the co-ordination of many moving parts. This includes a partnership with Burlington Coat Factory, the Knights of Columbus Insurance Agency, the local councils, St. Mary's Parish, and, most importantly, the community at large.
As the district deputy and campaign chairman, I am grateful for all the local families and businesses that contributed to this worthy cause. We hope to continue this legacy of giving next year.
I hope this letter finds all families in the Borderland in good spirits. In closing, I wish to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
District Deputy 37
