Kentucky State Council Featured Program

Kentucky's Heavenly Pennies

The Kentucky Heavenly Pennies Program (KHPP) is predicated on the old adage of a penny saved is a penny earned. It is also based on the concept of the time value of money. Money saved, no matter how small the amount, when done so on a routine and consistent basis over time, will result in significant savings. The monies earned through the KHPP are used to support vocations in the State of Kentucky.

A KHPP container is given to each Council to be used for collecting spare change (dollar bills also work!). At every Knights of Columbus meeting, event, and function, pass the jar and let everyone know that the money placed therein goes to support vocations in their area. The monies turned into the Kentucky State Council twice annually (on or before December 15th and on or before April 15th are distributed to the Diocese/Arch-Diocese in which each individual Council resides for their vocations programs.

The key to conducting a successful KHPP campaign in your Council is consistency. Pass the jar at every opportunity and once again set the standard as the Strong Right Arm of the Catholic Church. For more information or an extra KHPP container, contact Chairman Kent Hoskins.
