What we've been up to:

Thank you to our two teams for collecting on December 2 at McCaffrey’s West Windsor and December 3 at the Bagel Street Grill in Plainsboro for Alzheimer’s Awareness.  Together we collected over $600 for that charity.  Thank you!

 

 

Our first Habitat team completed the build on November 4. Our second team came out to brave 25 F temperatures at 8:30 am before the build day on November 11.  Thank you to all volunteer builders, prayer leaders and lunch makers for coming out to perform our charitable works.

 

The Knights of Columbus will continue to stay involved with this build into next year.  We will be back to  you for more opportunities to build on the project.

 

Please see the photos in the Photo Galleries from the build days to date.

 

Previously, we supported a blood drive on October 28.  Many brothers donated and helped the donors recover.

Next we prepared and had a pancake breakfast on October 29.  Thank you Brother Henry Wieck for leading this breakfast.  Thank you to all the brothers who setup, cooked, served and cleaned up after the event.  Please see the Photo Galleries for photos from the events.
