CALLING ALL KNITTERS AND CROCHETERS

This will be the 5th year the St. Joseph's Knights of Columbus take part in the coats for kids program, helping children in our community. The past 2 years we have had hats, gloves and scarves donated to go along with the coats.  We have experienced such a demand, this year we have purchased 72 coats to donate which is 33% more than the past years.  We would like to have donations of hats, mittens and scarves again.  We gladly accept all colors and we are looking for kids sizes 4-10 for the mittens. If you are interested in donating please contact Ralph Meister 402 707-8426. We try to get the coats out around the first week of November.
