Irmo Knights collect food and funds
IRMO—Knights of Columbus Council 6892 raised $3,139.44 and collected 3,388 pounds of food during its first “Forty Cans for Lent,” food drive.
The project benefits the various programs of Our Lady of the Hills Church and its St. Vincent de Paul Society to feed the poor in the parish, and community. Grand Knight Stephen Szymanski directed the initiative with Knights Arnold Farias, John Lisic, Joe Charland and Peter Zeef.
The annual program asks parishioners to donate either a canned good or a $1 for each of the 40 days of Lent.
