3397 Knights Donate to Local Food Bank

A Knight never shies away from helping an organization in need.

This week, the message of the Holy Father to “help those in need” was heard and delivered by our council.

At our Thursday business meeting, Outside Guard Michael Shawaryn reported that Angels of God Clothing Closet, a local nonprofit that provides clothing and more to those in need at no cost and also features a small food bank, had nearly barren food shelves .

Several Knights immediately responded with a promise to provide shelf-stable groceries for the organization, based in Pitman, N.J. By Saturday morning, our Knights delivered an SUV full of food to Angels of God, all purchased by the individual Knights themselves.

Elissa, the co-owner of the pantry was very pleased and excited that we brought the food and talked to our Knight’s at length about what Angels of God does and other needs they have. It turned out to be a very productive visit and we look forward to doing more things with this worthy organization in the future.
