Knights of Columbus members donate a check to the Special Education department.
Most people encounter the Knights of Columbus only as members seek donations through their Tootsie Roll campaign at area retail outlets. Our local schools, however, know these generous individuals for the good work they do throughout the year for the kids in our area. The donations they solicit, large and small, add up to a substantial amount that is parceled out to the Special Education departments throughout the School District of Oconee County. Recently, Knights of Columbus members Larry Patten and Frank Kler of Council 6884 delivered a check to Seneca Middle School with its portion of this year’s donations. Special Education Department Chair, Stephanie Shepherd, gratefully accepted the donation by saying, “We truly appreciate the dedication and support of the Knights of Columbus each year. These funds help our students to participate in educational field trips and purchase needed supplies. The impact felt by our students through the generosity of the Knights of Columbus is immeasurable.”
