“In light of the tragic events unfolding in Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, the Knights of Columbus will be conducting a special collection at the car show for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort,” stated Bryan Peterson of Roselle Park’s Knights of Columbus Msgr. Loreti Council #3240.
Next Saturday’s Knight of Columbus Car Show at the Church of the Assumption parking lot between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. will have all money collected go to the Knights of Columbus Disaster Relief Fund.
The Knights of Columbus Disaster Relief Fund is used to support the work of the local councils through their disaster response efforts, in coordination with emergency agencies and first responders. 100% of the funds raised go directly to relief efforts.
In addition to the car show, anyone interested in making a donation directly to the Knights of Columbus Disaster Relief Fund can send a check specifying that it is to support the Texas Hurricane Harvey Relief, to:
