SHOE AND BOOT orders may be picked up THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21 from 3:30-6pm at the DEF in room 248.
Brrr! Although winter is a part of life for us, being warm and prepared is a must! For many in the ROCORI community, having winter gear for their family is a challenge. A generous opportunity was given to the ROOCRI Community this fall – anyone (not just students!) in the ROCORI Community in need of a winter coat, boots or shoes could place an “order” for their needs. ROCORI Coats for All was promoted and run by the ROCORI Action Packs, allowing the original donor to remain anonymous. Our local Knights of Columbus is the anonymous donor. In the past, the Knights have purchased coats for local students, but on a much smaller scale. Their dream this year to provide for the community has exploded with more than 275 orders for coats, boots and/or shoes! The Knights decided that with this great community need, comes the opportunity for the community to give! Coats, boots and shoes have been purchased through local programs and vendors for less than $20 each. The Knights of Columbus is requesting your help in meeting the need of $10,000 to help our community. An account is open at State Bank of Cold Spring for your tax deductible donations. Checks can be made out to KC Coats and mailed to ROCORI Area Coats / PO Box 505 / Cold Spring, MN 56320.
Thank you to Farmers Insurance, Chris Pendergast agency for organizing 300+ new hats/gloves/mittens to be gifted with the coats!!
