Council 11234 “Knights Coats for Kids Program” for CPO

Monday, December 21st, 2020

Worthy Brother Knights,

Just to let everyone know that the Council has donated 24 children coats to CPO, from our Knights “Coats for Kids” program.

CPO was in need for Children coats for the winter, the request was for 24 coats, 12 boys, 12 girls. We purchased them from Supreme through the “Coats for Kids Program”. This issues was brought to our attention by our Fellow Brother Knight George Blasiole, who is our Parish representative to CPO and the organizer of all the collections in our Parish for CPO. A big thank you to George for reaching out to the Council for help!

We have dispersed the monies for the coats from our Community / Charities budget line. This budget line was designated specifically for CPO, BBM, OH, and TAM. So we had the monies to support this program.

As a side note our council will be eligible to receive two Community program points credits towards the “Columbian Award”, for our support for the program.

Thank you to all for support in “Helping the Needy” of our Community.

May God Bless!

Vivat Jesus!

Knights Christmas Food Delivery For the Needy

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

Worthy Brother Knights,

I have attached pictures from our Christmas Food Delivery today by some 35 volunteers. Two different Knight sponsored ministries delivery teams were involved, “Operation Harvest Team” and the “TAM Team”.

The “Operation Harvest Team”, lead by our fellow brother Knight Anthony Nacional, packed and delivered turkeys, hams, and food to 22 elderly shut in’s. The “TAM Team”, lead by Brother Knight Dave Rogers, packed and delivered turkeys and food to 24 families. “Operation Harvest” is a weekly food delivery ministry 52 weeks a year. The “TAM” is a monthly food ministry delivery on the 3rd Saturday of the month.

I would like to thank all the blessed volunteers that have helped these Knight sponsored ministries to help to feed the hungry today. I just want to thank all the Saint Catherines Parishioners, Knights, TAM, that contributed to our Christmas week Food delivery, for the donation of food, time and monies to support Feeding The Needy in Wake Forest.

May God Bless Everyone!

Vivat Jesus!
