This year has been extremely difficult for many, especially as the coronavirus pandemic amplified financial and emotional struggles across the world. The struggles of paying a rent or a mortgage have become staggering, and the coming winter months mean expensive utility bills. For many, there seems to be no relief in sight.
On the other hand, many of us have been very fortunate to have steady employment and the ability to provide for basic needs.
Let’s pay it forward by providing a warm coat to as many kids as possible this Giving Tuesday. Through our Coats for Kids campaign, please join the Knights of Columbus to ensure that every child receives a warm winter coat.
When we first announced our Giving Tuesday campaign, our amazing donors surprised us by exceeding our initial goal in two weeks. Inspired by this generosity, our donor decided to increase our matching fund goal to $250,000! That means every dollar you donate is automatically doubled, but only if you give today!
Can I count on you to put a smile on a child’s face? And to lighten the heavy burden felt by many? A gift of just $20 today will provide so much comfort through the rest of this winter season.
Please open your heart and help make a difference in a child’s life.
Ronald F. Schwarz Treasurer, Knights of Columbus
