BC KC’s do good year-round
One faith community is loving their neighbors as themselves, particularly during this holiday season.
The Bridge City Knights of Columbus- Sacred Heart Council #3406 have been busy Thanksgiving through New Year’s with cooking fund-raisers such as the New Year Pork Loin sales in order to contribute to different charitable works.
“Last week, we contributed $500 to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We also recently contributed $250 to the Bridge City Library,” said Ron Jackson of the Order. “We support Bridge City Project Graduation with our fund raising activities.”
In a special letter of thanks to all St. Henry Parishioners, Grand Knight Jimmy LeBlanc wrote the church’s fund-raising activities allowed them to meet the charitable and philanthropic goals of our Order.
“We are men of faith and men of action who continue to promote the vision of our Founder Fr. Michael J. McGivney. In our community council members work wonders; in fact, with the many programs offered by our Order and your commitment to supporting our fund-raising projects, , we can help our St. Henry Parish, community, city and neighborhood.
In addition to our Order raising funds to donate to charitable needs and projects, our Knights volunteer many hours of their time to charitable causes,” LeBlanc stated.
The letter further stated the Order undertakes these acts of charity because they see those in need through the eyes of their faith.
“Our charitable activities encompass an infinite variety of local, national and international projects. Charitable partnership with Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity are far reaching in support of those in need.
“The opportunity to work together with fellow Knights and their families is virtually endless,” he wrote.
LeBlanc wrote most of their charitable works are quietly done.
“Working together we can accomplish far more than any of us could do individually. This means that — as a Knight of Columbus — we can count on the support and encouragement of our Brother Knights as we work to make life better in our parish and community for those in need.”
The following charities that are supported by Bridge City Knights of Columbus Sacred Heart Council #3406:
Wounded Warrior Project, Catholic Youth Ministry, Support Charities, ACTS, Radio Maria, Special Olympics, Bridge City High School Project Graduation Class of 2013, Project Graduation, Hospitality House, Orange Christian Services, Oklahoma Tornado Victims Relief Fund, City of Bridge City, Knights of Charity, West Texas Firefighters and EMS, Bridge City Library, Encounter Catholic, Habitat for Humanity and Beaumont Hope Resource Center for Women.
