Des Moines Saint Augustin Council 10558 Treasurer, Al Reynolds (left) and Don Hauser, Past Grand Knight recently presented the first of ten cases of 12 coats from the KofC Coats for Kids program to Leslie Van Der Holen, Catholic Charities of Des Moines Saint Mary’s Family Shelter Manager. The purchase of the coats from the Supreme Council was made possible by donations from parishioners and members and friends of the local council in their annual year end project.
Cedar Rapids’ Donald C. Spaight Council 909 distributed over two-thirds of their shipment of 250 Coats for Kids at their council building on 12 January 2013. State Deputy Joe Ramirez (center) joined other state and Council 909 Brother Knights and their families in the distribution.
These two distributions join one already held in Sioux City. Additional distributions are planned across Iowa and will occur upon receipt of the coats from the supplier. Watch for further News Updates on these distributions.
