Hurricane Victims Need Your Help

In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, thousands of people in the southern United States, and especially in Carolinas and Florida, have found themselves displaced with their homes either flooded or destroyed.

As rescue efforts continue, and with recovery work yet to begin, join the Knights of Columbus in helping to provide immediate relief for these people.

Please donate what you can today to help.

The Knights of Columbus has a long history of lending a helping hand in times of distress. The Order was one of the first organizations to provide financial support to the families of fallen first responders following the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Through the Heroes Fund, began with a total of $1 million in donations. The Knights of Columbus led a multimillion-dollar recovery effort in Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. And years later, Knights were on the ground with supplies in a matter of hours after Superstorm Sandy devastated the Eastern seaboard. To Assist the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, the Knights of Columbus launched an initiative called the Livelihood Project that employed carpenters who lost their businesses to build boats for fishermen whose boats were destroyed.  And most recently, Knights volunteered to help those in need days after Southern Louisiana was hit by what was called “the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy.” During this time, the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council launched an online donation drive to assist with local relief operations.
