Knights of Columbus Gift Brunswick County Charities $35,000
The Knights of Columbus, Sacred Heart Council #12537 of Southport, gifted 17 Brunswick County charities $35,000 at The Knights June 13, 2018 business meeting . These gifts were made possible through the Knights Annual Charity Golf Tournament, bimonthly Italian Night Dinners and Operation LAMB Foundation (Least among My Brothers) recognized as the tootsie roll campaign. None of this would have been possible if not for the overwhelming support offered through the merchants, agencies, companies and people of Brunswick County.
Because of this participation the gifting to these charities on an annual basis has become a reality.
Historically covering a nineteen year period, Sacred Heart Knights have gifted over $380,000 to Brunswick County Charities.
Proceeds from LAMB (tootsie rolls) were gifted to Brunswick Special Olympics,
Brunswick County Exceptional Children Program, Communities in Schools and
the Brunswick Interagency Program. Thanks to Knight Lamb Director Kevin Holly
and his Knight volunteers, total collections were at a record $15,000.
Funds from the Knights Annual Golf Tournament and Italian Night Dinners were
gifted to Providence Home, Interfaith Food Pantry, First in Families, Adult Free
Medical Clinic, Computers for Kids, Hope Harbor Home, New Hope Clinic, First
in Families, Mathew’s Ministries, Our Lady of Sorrows Church, Brunswick
Housing Opportunities, Boys and Girls Homes and Brunswick County Sheriff “
Project LifeSaver Program”.
