St. Patrick Knights of Columbus Council 10567 voted at its June meeting to send donations to assist tornado victims in Oklahoma.
Donations were sent to three Knights of Columbus Councils in the hardest hit areas of the state: Council 767 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Council 1018 in Shawnee, Oklahoma; and Council 9901 in Moore, Oklahoma. The Knights will use the money to help those who need assistance in their area.
In his letter to the Councils accompanying the donations, Council 10567 Grand Knight Larry Cannon said, "Having gone through the ordeal of dealing with the aftermath of terrible storms ourselves, we are well aware how much help is needed. We hope this donation helps those in your area who are in need and trying to rebuild their lives in the wake of your recent tragedy."
Donations to Oklahoma tornado victims can be made through the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council either online at kofc.org/relief or through the mail at Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc., Oklahoma Fund, P. O. Box 1966, New Haven, CT 06509-1966. One hundred percent of all donations collected by Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc., will be sent to those affected by the disaster.
