From the wettest spring in state history to high winds and tornadoes, Iowans have prayed and survived. However, the hardships as a result of these disasters which have struck since April 2013 continue. Therefore, the Iowa Knights of Columbus wants to remind Councils, Assemblies, and Parishes that help is available through their Disaster Relief Fund.
Briefly, the Iowa Knights of Columbus Disaster Relief Fund offers a bit of assistance to as many persons as possible who have suffered household loss as a result of disasters, giving preference to Brother Knights first, fellow Catholics second, and assisting others third. Assistance is not intended to offer complete relief, replace insurance, or take care of health needs, but to offer ready cash to assist in everyday living needs as lives are put back together.
