Coats donated needy children

The Knights of Columbus Council #243 in Hornell donated 24 new boys and girls coats to Steuben Rural Ministries for distribution to families in the Canisteo valley.

The coats were purchased through the K of C Coats for kids program.

Since the program’s launching in 2009, more than 310,000 coats have been distributed in 49 states and all 10 Canadian provinces. In winter 2016 alone, the Knights of Columbus distributed 78,576 coats in 1,600 communities throughout the U.S. and Canada, including events at military bases, in Native American communities, at inner-city neighborhoods and through partnerships with local police and fire departments.
