Council Announcements

The Order is calling on Canadian councils and membership to support the Order’s Ukrainian relief efforts by making a gift to fund much needed care packages.

$50 CAN supports one package and 1 family in need. Together with your help, Knights and volunteers in Poland will prepare and distribute 3,000 of these boxes to Ukrainian families. Each of these special packages will contain either food (flour, rice, sugar, etc.), children’s items (milk, sweet snacks, porridge, etc.), or hygiene products (wipes, toothpaste, shampoo etc.). The boxes will also feature a sticker reading “In Solidarity with Ukraine” (in Ukrainian), the emblem of the Order, and “Knights of Columbus” (in English).

This is a unique opportunity for Canadian councils and members to get involved in this massive relief effort. Your tax-deductible donation of any amount will help fund these packages as we move forward.

Please share this  link to anyone you’d like to join us in our workClick Here.

Remember, 100% of your donation goes directly to support those in need.

This campaign will show the world how Canadian Knights work tirelessly to provide relief in times of great need!
