Community Committee Director: Bill McDermott
he Community Committee focuses on the first principle of the KofC, Charity – at home with our families and in our communities. When Knights of Columbus members come together they accomplish great things.
Our KofC Community Committee regularly supports our neighbors within our community by participating in a variety of local home refurbishment projects working in tandem with HomeFront and RebelsCare. These activities provide us with the opportunity to help our elderly or needy neighbors in tackling home repair projects such as painting, roof repair, yard work, etc. - things they are no longer able to do for themselves.
In conjunction with New Fairfield Social Services department, we also provide monetary support to the community. Our funding supports the local Food Bank, Fuel Bank and more.
Finally, our Council supports our parish community by sponsoring a variety of social events and activities for our parish family including monthly family-style dinners; a Mother's Day buffet breakfast, and more.
