Knights of Columbus Seek Donations for Troops

Cookies, candy, phone cards and playing cards are popular with the troops when they deploy, but those aren't the only things they're finding in their goody bags. The Knights of Columbus are seeing to their spiritual needs as well.

Last night, the Knights of Columbus Council 631 packed up 5,000 prayer cards, rosary rings and thank you cards to let soldiers know they're being thought of and prayed for.

"I was a veteran and the thing that got me through Desert Storm was the Bible and I thought this was a good way to support the troops, to let them know we care about them," said chancellor Walter Harper.

The Knights of Columbus raised money for the rosaries and prayer cards through donations from members.

To learn how you can contribute, contact : Knights of Columbus Council #631, 3 West Liberty Street, Savannah, GA 31401. Their phone number is: (912) 233-3497 or (912) 631-3301.
