Volunteer Opportunity – Coats for Kids Detroit Distribution

We are inviting all interested Knights and their families to the Coats for Kids distribution (through the Coats for Kids Program) our Council is participating in. Our District has amassed well over 150 coats to give away! (Our Council has purchased 96 alone!)

This volunteer opportunity is open to Knights and their families, as well as Catholic men and their families interested in learning more about what we as Knights do!

It will be an enjoyable event for the whole family.

The event is being held next Saturday, December 12th at:
Basilica of Sainte Anne de Detroit
1000 St. Anne St.
Detroit, MI 48216

Volunteers should arrive @ 9:00 am.
The event should end @ 2:00 pm.
Please send Financial Secretary Ray Bilyk an email (raybilyk@kofc3956.org) if you’re interested in attending so that we can alert the District Deputy.

This festival is very important for us because this is also our MEMBERSHIP DRIVE WEEKEND! We can use EVERYONE who attends to assist in asking eligible Catholics to join us in our good works… that they can see with their own eyes! I’ll make it interesting… FOR EVERY PROPOSER WHO BRINGS IN A NEW MEMBER (and they join us), I WILL GIVE THEM A $5 GIFT CARD FOR LITTLE CAESARS (or a $5 donation in your name to St. Pius)! (No, I don’t get a discount on the pizzas… I wish!) Ask anyone and everyone to join us in the Knights of Columbus!

Next Wednesday, September 6th at 7PM, we will be holding our monthly meeting in the St Pius Social Hall. Please attend if you can. We have a lot to discuss, so we would really like you to know what’s going on.

Hope to see you at the festival this weekend and/or at our meeting next Wednesday!

Fraternally yours in Christ,
