KNIGHTS IN Action

These are difficult times for everyone in our State.  Challenging times reveal the true character of an individual as well as an organization.

 

How we react to these times will define the Legacy of the Knights of Columbus for years to come.

Northern Council Provide Christmas Meal

For the third year in a row, Ogdensburg’s Knights of Columbus will be hosting its annual Christmas dinner to ensure no one will go hungry during the holidays. The Knights of Columbus took over hosting a Christmas dinner for those in need when the Ogdensburg Amvets disbanded in 2018. It also hosts an annual Thanksgiving dinner during which members fed roughly 650 people this year.

Catholic Charities Donation

Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster was the grateful beneficiary of a $500 donation from The Most Precious Blood Council #9254 of the Knights of Columbus. The funds, presented by the Council’s Grand Knight Jason Matadobra and District Deputy Paul Plate', to Catholic Charities’ Deputy CEO, Shannon Kelly, will be used to support the non-profit agency’s social safety net programs, including emergency food and shelter assistance.

“As the days grow colder and the pandemic lingers on, families are struggling to stay warm and safe. Catholic Charities is fortunate to have the support of community partners, like the Knights of Columbus, who embrace our mission to provide help and create hope for our neighbors in need. We are stronger together,” said Shannon Kelly.
