Pumpkin Sale & Coats for Kids

SALINAS – The Knights of Columbus (#5140) of the parish of Madonna del Sasso, 320 E. Laurel Drive, have announced the return of their annual Pumpkin Sale and Coats for Kids fundraisers.

Once again, the winter season comes into Salinas with its long cold nights and very cold winds. Our kids need some help to protect them from the cold weather and against the flu. Last year everyone was extremely supportive of this event. The children of your community thanks you! We are, again hoping you will help us keep our kids warm.

Coats for Kids will begin in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus’ annual Pumpkin Sale, which will be held on Sunday, 24 October 2021 from 8am until 4pm after all Masses in the church pavilion. Proceeds from the Pumpkin Sale which will go towards purchasing more coats.

The goal this year is 150 coats. $20 will add one coat to a case of 12. Your donation will be greatly appreciated by your Knights of Columbus, but especially by the children that will put them on every day feeling the warmth of generous love.

Donations may be sent to John Silva, 1544 Menlo Way, Salinas, CA. 93906. Please make checks payable to “KOC 5140“.

Coats for Kids ends on Wednesday, 15 December 2021.
