Coats For Kids
The goal of the Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in our community goes without a coat during the winter season.
Last year, Christopher Council donated 146 coats to provide warmth for children in need during the cold winter months.
We would like to double this number in 2020. We need your help. Donations are needed this year more than ever. With the pandemic, more children are in need, and our fundraising efforts have been impeded.
Make monetary donations at https://coats-for-kids-3182.cheddarup.com or mail a check to Knights of Columbus #3182 c/o Coats for Kids, 135 Princeton Ave, Claymont, DE 19703. You may also donate NEW cold weather gear (coats, hats, gloves/mittens, scarfs) that can be dropped off at Holy Rosary or St. Helena churches.
