Father John Jay Jackson Council 1101 in Jackson, Tenn., annually donates Christmas toys for more than 500 families. For 15 years, they have also given bicycles.
The bikes are funded thanks in part to donations from local parishioners and businesses. This year, the council will give away 240 bicycles.
“The bikes make the greatest impact on the children,” said David Dallas, a member of the council who organizes the program. “The excitement is palpable and such a blessing to see.”
This program is just one way Knights bring joy and peace of mind to families during the winter. Since 2009, Knights of Columbus around the world have provided more than 660,000 warm winter coats for children through the Coats for Kids program.
