“Coats For Kids Drive”
folks,,,, As a new fall/winter season is slowly creeping upon us and our kids are outgrowing their coats, we will soon begin
the task of purchasing new coats for our sons & daughters. But what will we do with the outgrown coat(s) after we have
purchased the new coat(s).
May I suggest that we make a difference in a less
fortunate kids life by donating the outgrown coat(s) to the Columbus Council #126 “Coats For Kids Drive”
Donated kids coats from newborn to 18 years can be dropped off at Columbus Council #126 located at 3051
Nostrand Avenue corner of Quentin Road where there will be a collection box set up in the lobby thru October 31, 2014.
If you are so inclined, we will also accept new kids coats or a monetary donation and we will purchase
new kids coats through the Knights of Columbus “Coats for Kids” program. The cost for a box of 12 coats is $220.
Please contact Sir Knight Eddie Velinskie @ 347-210-1249 for any large amount of coats that need to be
picked up or any questions. Vivat Jesus
