Kids Coats in Manitoba

Coats for Kids 2012/2013

While the weather is warm now, we all know that the cold winds of winter will blow. Providing coats for needy children is a great way for your council to get involved in the local community. This could be the first new coat a child has received.  All councils should make an effort to participate in this program. There are two ways to participate, order case lots of 12 coats at a cost of $16.25 per coat, shipping charges will be added to each order, Supreme picks up 50% of the shipping charge, for those who wish to participate in less than case lot numbers Manitoba State will have a small supply of coats available. Coats come in sizes 4-16 for girls and 4-18 for boys.  For further information on how we can help your council be part of this worthy program please contact, Bill Cox, Coats for Kids Program Chairman at or 204 334 3324.

The “Coats for Kids” program is part of the Knights’ “Help a Child in Need” campaign, which began in 2006 with a nationwide appeal during the Christmas season for donations to charities that support the needs of children. The initiative began as an effort to help families with children living in colder climates who have been severely impacted by the sharp and sudden downturn in the economy.

If your Knights of Columbus council is interested in participating in the “Coats for Kids” initiative, please complete the order form and send to one of the following:

Knights of Columbus
Attn: R. Ennis, 12th Floor
1 Columbus Plaza
New Haven, CT 06510

Please note that all orders must be signed by the grand knight (for a local council), district deputy (for a district), or state deputy (for a state council), and that there is no need to enclose payment with the order. Once the coats have shipped, and shipping charges have been determined, the Supreme Council will ask for payment from the local council, district or state council. Please pay by check (payable to Knights of Columbus), and allow 2-3 weeks from receipt of the order for delivery.
