RED BANK, NJ: The Knights of Columbus’ first ever “Coats for Kids” campaign was a huge success.

They surpassed their goal of $3,000 to provide hundreds of youngsters who did not have the means to purchase coats for the harsh fall and winter months.

The K of C coordinated with the community schools and delivered over 100 jackets to the Red Bank Primary School, Middle School and the Pre-K Program.
