Knights of Columbus make charitable donations
December 1, 2022
The St. Stephen Council 1906, Knights of Columbus started out the 2022 Christmas season with a couple of charitable donations. The Council took action during their November meeting.
One donation was made to the ‘Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House’ near Waverly. The Retreat House recently lost the use of their furnace that required the facility to replace the entire system. As such, as part of their effort to raise money to pay for a new furnace, they contacted the Knights of Columbus organizations across the state for support. In response to their request, the local Council voted to send a $250 donation.
The second donation was sent to the Nebraska Knights of Columbus Foundation. This $500 donation will help the Knights grow the foundation’s base from which they will use the interest for charitable needs across the state.
