The Knights of Columbus, founded on principles of charity, unity and fraternity in 1882, was formed to assist the disabled, infirm and needy members, as well as their families. In addition to help for those who have jointed this fraternal benefit society, the Knights of Columbus are encouraged to engage in public relief and war relief, among other activities.

With this viewpoint, our local Knights of Columbus offers a dinner of three tacos, rice and beans for $7 this Friday at Blessed Sacrament hall in Mammoth from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to benefit people with intellectual disabilities. Take out is available.

“The Knights of Columbus is one of the largest contributors to Special Olympics in the state and nation,” said local Grand Knight Jerry Bribiescas.

“We can also designate our funds to local special education programs in the schools,” he added.

“People may have seen Knights of Columbus giving away Tootsie Rolls outside stores in Tucson and Catalina as their PID drive. Since we don’t have a Fry’s or Bashas’ or WalMart or Walgreens, we are offering a dinner to raise PID funds,” Bribiescas said.
