Coats for Kids

Donate Online Today

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, many of us are busy decorating, planning our dinners and shopping for gifts.

Let’s not lose sight of what Thanksgiving really means — It’s about giving thanks and giving back.

December 1 is Giving Tuesday — an international day of giving that follows the gratefulness of Thanksgiving with the generosity of charity. Do you have it marked on your calendar?

This Giving Tuesday, the Knights of Columbus will raise money to purchase more than 6,000 new coats for children in need. We’ll only have 24-hours to raise $135,000 — the amount needed to bring the gift of warmth to thousands — and we’ll need your help to do it.    Our council has a personal goal of $1500 (that’s 72 coats).  Please spread the word to make this happen.

This year, your gift goes even further. A generous donor has pledged to match every dollar donated this #GivingTuesday up to $135,000.

That means that you can support twice as many kids — but only if you give today!

On Giving Tuesday, we will need your help and generosity to bring the gift of warmth to children this winter. Please mark your calendar and get excited to make a difference!
