Maggie Valley Knights of Columbus Council #12478 recently donated warm winter jackets to two local area schools for distribution to children in need.

Two cases of 12 new coats — half for boys, half for girls — were donated to both Hazelwood Elementary School and Jonathan Creek Elementary School, as part of the national Knights of Columbus ‘Coats for Kids’ program.

The program distributed nearly 80,000 jackets needy children throughout the U.S. last year.
