Knights of Colum­bus launches unique fundraiser

Truro Daily News - - NOVA SCOTIA - SPE­CIAL TO THE TRURO NEWS

The lo­cal Truro Knights of Colum­bus – Coun­cil 6633 con­tin­ues to sup­port the com­mu­nity in many ways, par­tic­u­larly this time of year.

The Knights have de­liv­ered more than 60 coats this year to kids in need. As well, they grow and de­liver more than 20,000 pounds of food, with the help of the Old Barns men’s club, to the Truro Food bank – 23,000 pounds in 2018. Also, they con­trib­ute to Gu­atemala fam­i­lies by pur­chas­ing stoves each year.

The Knights host an an­nual lo­cal and pro­vin­cial free-throw con­test for hun­dreds of lo­cal chil­dren and pro­vide all par­tic­i­pants with awards, pizza and pop. There are many other be­hind-the-scene dona­tions through the Saint Vin­cent De Paul char­ity and other lo­cal char­i­ta­ble groups.

All money raised by the Knights is used for char­ity and this year they are pleased to an­nounce the 2019 Cash Cal­en­dar fundrais­ing ef­fort, which will al­low them to help the com­mu­nity even more in 2019.

With the as­sis­tance of Truro At­lantic Su­per­store, they are now sell­ing 1,000 cash cal­en­dars for $20 each. The cal­en­dars are spon­sored by lo­cal busi­nesses and each is unique, in that they are a ticket into a daily draw.

More than $27,000 in prizes will be dis­trib­uted through six pro­vin­cial Knights of Colum­bus coun­cils as fol­lows: 365 daily prizes of $50; eight monthly prizes of $150; four ex­tra monthly prizes of $200, $300, $400 and $500; and one grand prize of $5,000, drawn for on Nov 30, 2019. There are less than 700 cal­en­dars left for sale so to have fun and con­trib­ute to a good cause, cal­en­dars can be pur­chased at the cour­tesy desk of the Truro At­lantic Su­per­store or from any mem­ber of the Knights of Colum­bus Truro Coun­cil.
