Knights of Columbus purchase coats for children this winter

RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Knights of Columbus are doing their part to keep children warm this winter.

Knights of Columbus dropped off dozens of coats to the Children’s Home Society in Rapid City.

All the coats were purchased with money raised from the Knights of Columbus’ annual Coats for Kids Bowling Tournament.

Last year, they raised over $5,000 to buy 228 coats.

“We’re hoping with a little luck and hard work we’ll be able to match that $5,000 again this year and buy more coats for the kids next year,” said John Schlim of the St. Therese Knights of Columbus.

This year’s Coats for Kids Bowling Tournament will be January 8 at Meadowood Lanes on Sturgis Road.

The community is encouraged to come help the cause and the cost to participate is $20 per person.
