On Saturday, November 13th, a Coats for Kids distribution was held in Ecorse at St. Andre Bessette Parish. Over 200 families were served with over 450 coats distributed. The families came from as far north as Southwest Detroit and as far south as Gibraltar. Over 30 volunteers, including Knights and families from Councils in multiple Districts throughout the Archdiocese and members of the parish assisted to make this event a success!


Many thanks to Robert Jones Council 3078 and District 105 for making this event happen so quickly. Special thanks to District Warden Sean Roland and his employer MarxModa for ensuring we had a vehicle to get the boxes of coats to the event. The best part was seeing the smiles on the kids' faces when they received brand new coats to face the winter. A good time was had by all!.
