Every community has its unique needs. For the Knights of Columbus, whose first principle is charity, finding ways to help those in need in their communities is a mission its members embrace. Through their good works, whether it be bringing food to the hungry, warm coats to the cold, wheelchairs to those who can’t walk, or any of the many other programs conducted to help those in need, the Knights of Columbus practices a charity that evangelizes. 

These are just some of the ways our council ministers to the local community. 

  • Volunteerism
  • Good Shepherd House
  • Military
  • Special Olympics
  • Polar Plunge
  • Columbus Day Dinner
  • Parades
  • 21 Day Flag Salute
  • Health – Blood Pressure
  • LAMB Foundation

The last, LAMB Foundation, is a major initiative of the Knights of Columbus in North Carolina. Our council maintains a leadership position in this worthy organization.
