During the COVID 19 crisis, the Cranford Knights of Columbus Council # 6226 has been very active in our support of the Cranford Community through donations and charitable works. The Council made a $500.00 donation to Cranford Family Care to assist this fine organization during these difficult times. The Council also purchased $1,000 of gift cards from local establishments and donated them to the Cranford PBA, FMBA and the Cranford First Aid Squad and many others in need. On Saturday, May 9th, Brothers Knights gathered in St. Michael’s School parking lot and collected over 6 full boxes of food items for the Cranford PBA Food Drive, and presented them that day. Pictured during the collection and donation are Deputy Grand Knight Jerry Conheeney, Past Grand Knight Pat Forker, Brother Anthony Messina, Past Grand Knight and District Deputy Jim Vari. Lastly, the Scholarship Committee will make an announcement shortly of our Annual Scholarship Award winners, and every year the Council awards Scholarships to worthy high school seniors going off to college.
The Cranford Knights of Columbus is a Catholic Fraternal Organization dedicated to our Four Core Principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The Cranford Council supports many charities and civic causes locally, state-wide, and nationally and is committed to be a viable part of our Community.
