Knight of Columbus Leave no Neighbor Behind – Masks for Charity
COVID-19 has closed businesses, put our union workers out of jobs, and given families hard choices to make; Work with a pre-existing condition and feed my family or stay home and social distance. Unfortunately, this has significantly limited our traditional fundraising methods. Last year we raised over $2200 for Sarnia’s food banks. This year because of physical distancing, we cannot fundraise the same way.
We need your help. Let’s help Sarnia, our home, where our social programs are lacking, by donating to the people who need it the most. Proceeds from every mask sale will benefit food banks or our Coats for Kids Program in the City of Sarnia, where the greatest need exists. You can decide how you help.
Let’s help our neighbours today and leave no neighbour behind.
High-Quality disposable latex-free three-layer surgical style face mask with a noseband. These masks pass the “candle test” and holds water.
We accept all major credit cards, debit, chip, tap, interact, or E-transfers. No cash.

As in years past, William E. Prentice Council 1429 continues its support of this very important festival each year. Seen leading the procession through the streets around our home base at Our Lady of Mercy church, is Deacon Lyle LaLonge. Representing the Council were Sean Jesso, Maria and Jim Leliveld and David Rodrigues.
The Knights of Councils 1429 and 10102 were up to the task to cook for parishioners and others who showed up in droves at what is reportedly the best showing ever for a Mass in the Park at Canatara Park.
Working hard to Stuff the Bus, several Knights cooked for store goers at Food Basics to help fill two Sarnia Transit buses with non-perishable food items to be passed along to the Salvation Army and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Shoppers responded enthusiastically by donating generously, especially badly needed items like diapers, toilet paper, feminine products, canned fruit and peanut butter.
Over 12,200 pounds of food was collected for the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul Society, far surpassing last year’s total of about 10,000 pounds.
The two agencies will also share $1,667 in cash donations.
