Worthy Grand Knights and Brother Knights,

I’m sure you have all seen the recent devastation in Texas as a  result of Hurricane Harvey.  We all know, from past storms that have impacted New Jersey in the past few years, the mental and physical damage caused by such storms.  We all also know how Brother Knights and their families have come to the assistance of others when these devastations occur.  There are many things that we as Knights can do to assist the people of Texas as they deal with this situation:

First – PRAY! The physical happenings are hard to imagine for us  but we need to pray for all those impacted and ask God to watch over all the people of Texas impacted.

Second – Monetary Donations! The Knights of Columbus Supreme website has a LINK  (Link:  https://kofc.org/en/secure/charities/annual-appeal.html )for anyone to make a donation that will go directly to assist the people impacted.

Also you can go to the Texas Knights of Columbus State Council website and click on the “Donate to Disaster Relief Fund” (Link:  http://www.tkofc.org/fundraising/project/disaster-relief-fund ) link to make a donation.  Be sure to designate “Harvey” in memo field.

The State Council will be making a donation and we ask anyone who has the means to do so as well.


Bob Hatler, State Deputy
