The Knights of Columbus St. Petersburg council is collecting donations at Masses and in front of Publix at Northeast Shopping Center and elsewhere in the community to support citizens with disabilities in the community. Proceeds go to organizations serving handicapped citizens. The council will select the organizations when the drive is completed.
In the past, the St. Petersburg Knights of Columbus Council has raised $2,000 to $3,000 during the drive. Some of the organizations selected in the past include: Morningstar School, Special Olympics, Pinellas Association of Retarded Citizens (PARC), Summer Camp for Handicapped Children run by the Diocese, and others.
More than a dozen St. Raphael Knights of Columbus members participated in the drive.
