Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus, in conjunction with local and state councils across the Northeast, is joining relief efforts.

The Supreme Council announced this morning that it is making an immediate $100,000 donation, giving $50,000 each to the state councils of New York and New Jersey to assist in local relief efforts in those hardest-hit jurisdictions.

In addition, the Supreme Council has launched an online donation drive, soliciting contributions from its members and the general public. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts in local communities.

"Knights have a long tradition of providing disaster relief," said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, "and this is no exception. Our communities need our time, our help, and our financial assistance, and we are going to do all that we can — working closely with our local and state councils — to help those most in need as a result of this storm."
