Coats for Kids

What is it about Coats for Kids that has the Holy Spirit Knights of Columbus involved? Is it the brand new coats themselves? Their soft and colorful lining that keeps kids warm and cozy? Could it be the hoods that offer built in protection from wind and snow? Maybe it’s the water repellent shell that beads up water so kids stay dry, or the coat’s deep pockets and machine washable fabric.

 The bottom line is that giving a child a new coat positively impacts that child’s self-esteem and self-worth.  The impact on kids that receive coats from The Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids Program is dramatic, as evidenced by heads held high, smiles, and fewer missed days of school because of illness. That is what the Knights were considering when they donated the coats. 

Coats were distributed Oct. 31 at DeNeuville Learning Center and Catholic Charities in Memphis. Knights representatives on hand included Tim McNeive, Grand Knight, Knights of Columbus Holy Spirit Council 15196, along with fellow Knights and their wives: Mike and Linda Heitzman and Mike and Nina Pietrangelo. 

The Knights of Columbus Holy Spirit Council 15196 participated this year in Coats for Kids to bring warm (new) coats to children in Memphis and Shelby County who may not have had a warm coat for the cold months ahead. 

Thanks to our Knights of Columbus Holy Spirit Council 15196 for their generous gifts of coats this year!
