On October 19th, the Michigan State Council Knights of Columbus sponsored “Coats for Kids”. OLR Parish Council; MSGR A.X.M. Sharpe 600 had several members participate in the event at St. Damien of Molokai Hall in Pontiac.
This program’s primary goal is to help kids stay warm in the winter when a child’s family does not have the resources to adequately meet this need. A warm coat means a child can more realistically attend school, go to after-school programs, fit in with other children, play and do all the things that kids do to be kids. In a very real sense, a warm winter coat means mobility.
Our mission is to make this seemingly small part of life a little bet easier for these families. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during this winter season.
Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since the program inception.
