Coats for Kids – Featured Program
Chairman Randy Balausky Community Programs
Giving the Gift of Warmth – Charity that Evangelizes!
Knights of Columbus across the US and Canada have been growing the charitable reach of our Coats for Kids program since 2009. Since then, over 370,000 coats have been donated to kids who need them by these men they call Knights!
Partnerships with schools, shelters, police and fire departments are just some of the ways Councils are getting coats where they are most needed, showing once again that Charity is the Knights of Columbus’ first principle.
Minnesota Councils running this program can count their distribution as a featured program by distributing 96 coats.
For councils who wish to partoicipate in the 1 for 1 offer, coats should be ordered through the State using the form given below.
Prices shown are per case of twelve (includes ground shipping only) for orders shipped to addresses in the continental United States. Coats are only sold by the full case.
Pre-packed cases will contain either boys’ coats or girls’ coats (mixed cases are not available).
Councils can source the Coats where they choose but Supreme has a living wage agreement with our vendor to insure our funds support ethical business. Please note Coats are offered for charitable purposes and not to be resold.
Once again this year, our Supreme Office is offering a 1 for 1 match, if you order through the State, and meet certain qualifications!
Please see the document “2022 State Council Coats for Kids Matching Program for details, but PLEASE send an email to Randy Balausky if you plan to participate.
