The Greenville Knights of Columbus continue to support many worthwhile community organizations.
Twice annually, the local Knights donated 100 pounds of hamburger to the Bond County Food Pantry. The meat, which is purchased with the cooperation and support of Capri IGA, is available for free to Food Pantry Patrons. Jennifer Jackson, manager of the Senior Center and the Food Pantry, said they service hundreds of individuals and families each month and are always in need of food donations.
The Greenville Knights also assist with the building rent twice annual for the Bond County Pregnancy Support Center. This organization provides services to new and expectant mothers and provides many needed items for infants. Brenda Harris, director of the Pregnancy Support Center, said they serve many new mothers each and every month and provide support to the new families.
The Greenville Knights of Columbus recently held their annual Tootsie Roll drive, collecting donations to help those with intellectual disabilities. Over the years, with the support of the local community, the Greenville Knights of Columbus have donated thousands of dollars to local organizations serving the special needs community.
Looking ahead, the Greenville Knights of Columbus are will participate in Truck or Treat in downtown Greenville and are currently making arrangements for their second annual Pancake and Sausage day, which will be held at St. Lawrence Catholic Church.
