2022 Coats for Kids

Starting last fall, the K of C in Port Henry (with the assistance of Day Brothers in Plattsburgh), procured a Radisson canoe and conducted a raffle with the intent that all of the proceeds/profits of the raffle were to be used to purchase winter jackets for the ‘Coats for Kids’ program.  Essex County DSS graciously agreed to distribute the jackets via their client list and other contacts.  Three members of the K of C delivered the jackets to representatives of Essex County DSS on Thursday, October 13th.
