Coats for Kids

kofc2018Help Keep the Children of Visitation BVM Parish Warm this Winter!

The Knights of Columbus Fr. John E. Doyle Council is once again sponsoring a Coats for Kids drive to benefit the children of our sister parish, Visitation BVM in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.

We encourage you to donate new or lightly used winter clothing the weekends of Oct 31 /Nov 1 and Nov. 7—8 prior to delivery to Visitation BVM parish.

The collection will be held in the REC Room and Narthex of the Corpus Christi Church.

In lieu of clothing, cash donations will be accepted with proceeds being sent directly to the school administrators to be used for whatever clothing items the kids may need.


For more information, please contact Kevin Conroy at (215) 872-8747 or visit the Fr. John E. Doyle council website at:
