The Atlantic Knights of Columbus recently donated to several local food pantries, and the amounts were as follows: $1,600 to the Atlantic Food Pantry, $300 to the Griswold Food Pantry and $150 to the Anita Food Pantry. No pictures were taken this year due to COVID-19, and the coronavirus outbreak also caused the group not to be able to do their normal in person fund-raising. So this year, the group decided to hold a raffle and give away a Traeger grill - a big smoker grill - with the proceeds going to various charitable causes including to the food pantries. The donations to the food pantries have been made in time to assist with Thanksgiving meals for those in need.
The Atlantic Knights of Columbus Council also recently received the Star Council Award, and they have received this year for the last five years. They received it for meeting and exceeding all of the goals from the Knights of Columbus Supreme Office for six out of seven years.
