Some of the Charities Council 10930 Supports
The following are some of the Charities the Knights of Columbus Council 10930 support within our community. We also support the needs of Parish and the youth of our community.
Meals on Wheels
Not only do we donate money to Meals on Wheels we have several routes each week that Members of our Council run. This is a great charity that help the elderly and those in need receive hot meals each day.
Society of St. Vincent de Paul St. Thomas the Apostle Conference
We donate money to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul which uses the funds collected to assist people in need. Two team members will perform a home visit and determine with the client how best to help. Assistance can take the form of partial rent payments, payment of utilities and/or referral to another agency.
Three times a year we provide a meal to the Samaritan House. We also have numberous members who help with other groups in our parish to help provide meals.
