Knights of Columbus Youth Coat Drive at MRHC

The Manning-Manilla Knights of Columbus are hosting a coat drive for all area youth at Manning Regional Healthcare Center beginning October 7th and while supplies last.

“We know the COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on many families, so we want to be sure that every child who may be in need of a winter coat gets one,” said Wes Dammann, Manning-Manilla Knights of Columbus grand knight. “By making the MRHC lobby a site for the annual coat drive, it’s easily accessible for everyone in need,” Dammann said.

In addition to the hospital, a select number of coats will also be available at Sacred Heart Church in Manning. Coats will be available for boys and girls ranging from sizes 2T-18/20. “In order to ensure everyone who needs a coat can get one, we recommend one coat per child,” said Damman.

“We want to thank the community for supporting our pancake breakfasts, chicken dinners and other fundraisers throughout the year, as the funds from those events allow us to do this annual coat drive,” Dammann said.

Coats will be available during normal clinic hours, 8 a.m – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays 9-11a.m. Everyone who enters MRHC will be required to pass a COVID-19 screening. This includes a temperature check, answering a three questions and wearing a mask before and during entry.
