Coats for (Rapp) Kids

For several years now, Knights of Columbus Fr. Maurice du Castillon Council 14755 has donated coats to Rappahannock County Social Services, each one helping a child in this county to be a bit more comfortable and secure during the cold days of winter.

This year, Coats for Kids Director John Hagarty and Fred Eggers coordinated the effort for the local council. Seen here last Thursday, Rappahannock County Social Services Director Jennifer Parker accepts 24 boys and girls coats presented by Grand Knight Pete Gasper. Since 2009, nearly 500,000 coats have been distributed in 49 states and all 10 Canadian provinces in the Knights-developed Coats for Kids program.
