New coats delivered to Lee’s Summit Social Services
Members of the Lee’s Summit Knights of Columbus council recently delivered dozens of new winter coats for children to Lee’s Summit Social Services.
The nonprofit received 24 boys’ coats and 24 girls’ coats.
The local Knights council, one of three councils in the city, is located at Our Lady of Presentation Catholic Church in Lee’s Summit. Annual fundraisers such as Las Vegas Night, the Tootsie Roll drive, breakfasts, and golf tournaments help support the Knights of Columbus mission and allow the group to make donations.
Never miss a local story.
Ahead of its annual Christmas store on Dec. 4, Lee’s Summit Social Services will continue to take donations — including unwrapped toys, games, and monetary gifts.
