Press release from Red Bank-based Knights of Columbus council #525
In 2017 our Council kicked off the first ever ‘ Coats for Kids’ program in the Red Bank area. In our fifth year of the program program we have provided hundreds of kids across the community who do not have the means to purchase a new or appropriate jacket for the harsh winter weather we experience.

Expecting its “most demanding year year yet,” the Red Bank-based
Knights of Columbus council #525 is seeking community support for a four-year-old Coats for Kids program.
Under a national Knights of Columbus program, the Red Bank-based council acquires new winter coats at a deep discount.

Red Bank Primary School nurse Cathy Reardon sees it every winter year, she said: students in threadbare, hand-me-down coats, sometimes a couple of sizes too small.
Beginning immediately, though, those kids will be getting new winter coats for free, thanks to the efforts of the borough-based
Knights of Columbus council #525.
