Knights of Columbus begin annual fundraising drive
Submitted By St. Elizabeth Council 8747 of Milpitas
The 60,000 members of the Knights of Columbus in California and their volunteers will conduct their Annual Fund Raiser Drive, kicking off October 19 - 21, in communities across the state to raise funds to benefit People with Intellectual Disabilities.
In Milpitas, St. Elizabeth Council #8747 will coordinate the Knights of Columbus' efforts. Charles Hudson, Program Director, suggests that anyone wishing to learn how to help with the fundraising drive can contact him at (408) 263-4638.
The Knights of Columbus are urging citizens everywhere to support this important fund raising activity by making a donation. Every nickel, dime and dollar is needed and will be deeply appreciated.
Knights of Columbus volunteers will be easily visible because of the bright yellow aprons they will be wearing and the canisters and candies they will be carrying. In Milpitas, they will be in front of the Lucky Store at 1350 S. Park Victoria Dr.; the Ocean Supermarket located at 2 S. Park Victoria Dr., and Nob Hill Foods, 401 Jacklin Rd.
People with Intellectual Disabilities need the support of the general public so that they can develop and be productive contributing members of society. The Milpitas High School Special Education Program will be our recipient of funds collected during the Drive.
