Way to go Knights of Columbus!
Jessica Rossomme, Director of Operations for Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry is sitting on our famous butterfly bench with Ryan Knippel from the Knights of Columbus and his two adorable children.
We were excited to donate $750 for their event.
Additional information about the Knights of Columbus.
From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.
In 2015, the Knights of Columbus set a record in charitable giving for the 17th consecutive year. Our charitable donations increased from 2014 by more than $1.5 million to a new total exceeding $175 million. In addition, we achieved our highest level of charitable service in 2015, volunteering more than 73.5 million hours of service. The number of service hours contributed by Knights rose in 2015 by more than a million over the previous year’s total.
Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. Our own unique charities include the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, Disaster Relief, Ultrasound Initiative, and Coats for Kids. We also partner with international charities including Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity
