MONROE — The Knights of Columbus Monroe Council 2079 recently donated two dozen brand new winter coats for boys and girls to the Pallotine Sisters Outreach of Hispanic Ministry.

This is part of a nationwide program run by the Supreme Council Knights of Columbus headquarters in New Haven, Conn., in which local councils are able to purchase cases of coats and donate them to those in need within their own communities.

It is the fourth year that the Monroe Council has participated in the program.

The Pallotine Sisters Outreach is based out of the Queen of Apostles Center on Harriman Heights Road and works with the Spanish community of St. Anastasia Parish in Harriman, Sacred Heart Parish in Monroe and St. Patrick's Parish in Highland Mills.

The payment for the coats was made possible through the efforts of fund-raising chairman, Frank "Uncle Buck" Pileggi and the community at large that have participated throughout the year in the council's many charity events and campaigns.

Sisters Michele Ruggiero and Rini Panakkal expressed their gratitude for the coats, which were delivered just after Thanksgiving.

Anyone interested in donating their time, or financially, to the Hispanic Ministry can contact Sr. Michele at 845-774-5020.

To find out more about the Monroe Knights of Columbus, call 845-782-2179.
