November 13, 2018, the Council donated 96 new winter coats to The Lodge Shelter of Fayetteville Inasmuch. Officer Sanders of the Fayetteville Police Dept. received the coats which will be distributed to local homeless children on Friday, November 16th. Officer Sanders is the Police Dept. liaison for our local homeless community, and was very appreciative of the donation. Kudos to our Knights of Columbus for making a difference in our community!
Operation LAMB is a program of the Knights of Columbus. The sole mission of LAMB is to assist people in North Carolina who have intellectual disabilities. During the campaign, Knights, along with their families and friends, stand long hours outside shopping centers to give away Tootsie Rolls and to collect donations to assist those with intellectual disabilities. Thanks to the extreme generosity of shoppers, corporate sponsors and retail outlets that support our annual Tootsie Roll campaign, funds are raised and disbursed to local organizations in support of the intellectual disabled in our community.
The Sons of Mother Seton Council has provided funds for the "Exceptional Children" programs in numerous schools throughout Cumberland County, the Autism Society of Cumberland County and Special Olympics of Cumberland County. Smiling faces and bright yellow aprons have become a familiar sight at stores within our community. When you see us, stop by, have a Tootsie Roll, and if able, make a donation. For more information about Operation LAMB and their good works go to: www.lambnc.org.
Each year, at the end of the campaign, the Knights host a Bowling Tournament to thank all the Teachers and volunteers who gave so generously of their time. This year, the third place trophy went to the EE Smith High School Bowling Team! This team consisted of three special needs students and their teacher. (Pictured from the left) Ms. Anita Faircloth (EC teacher), Eric Byson and Caleb Gibson Dorsey. Not pictured is team member Joshua Lewis. Congratulations Team EE Smith!
