Coats for Kids Program
In 2009, the Knights of Columbus launched the Coats for Kids initiative designed to keep children warm in harsh winter climates. With many families with children struggling in tough economic times, there was a clear need to provide warm winter coats to children.
Since the program’s inception, the Knights of Columbus in North America have given away more than 167,000 winter coats to children in need.
Our Council is proud to sponsor this initiative in our local community and are reaching out to other fraternal and social organizations to partner with us, so that every child stays warm this winter.
“This year we raised over $2500 for Coats4Kids this year. A formal acknowledgment will be in the paper and possibly on the radio, in the coming weeks, but I am too pleased with the results to wait to announce it. I calculate we will be able to purchase about 8 dozen brand new winter jackets for young people that need them. This is a feat that I did not accomplish by myself. Rather it was an accomplishment that required cooperation from over 20 individual and corporate donor’s. I am more than pleased to facilitate such an awesome coordinated effort.” Nathan Cousineau
