GREELEY, Colo., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With many still suffering from the upheaval caused by the flooding in Colorado, the Knights of Columbus will distribute new winter coats to children in need on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Father Raney Council #2160 in Greeley – the second distribution in Colorado this month. A similar event was held earlier this month in Denver with the help of members of the Denver Broncos organization and their families.
Last year, Knights distributed more than 42,000 coats, and the organization has distributed more than 125,000 coats since 2009. In addition, last year, Knights donated more than $167.5 million and 70 million hours to charitable causes.
WHAT: Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids distribution.
WHEN: Oct. 29 at 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Father Raney Knights of Columbus Council, 2600 6th Avenue Greeley, Colo.
WHY: The Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids Program brings the gift of warmth to children. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson told this summer's K of C national convention that: "For children who don't have the clothing to stay warm, winter can be debilitating. Our Coats for Kids program protects young children from the cold by giving brand new coats to those who need them." Since 2009, we have distributed more than 125,000 coats to kids throughout the United States and Canada.
WHO: Bob Buljung of the Colorado Knights of Columbus and Yale Badik from the Knights' international headquarters in New Haven, Conn., will be on hand.
