Less than 24 hours after Environment Canada issued an extreme-cold warning in Westman, the local Knights of Columbus donated 24 brand-new winter coats to the Brandon School Division.
Knights of Columbus community director Robert Cey told the Sun the Tuesday morning delivery is part of this year’s Coats for Kids campaign, which is designed to supply local students in need with warm winter wear for the season.
Cey said BSD officials will determine which students receive the jackets.
“It’s the right time of year for giving and with the cold weather, they will definitely be welcome,” Cey said.
On BSD’s official website, staff and students thanked the Knights of Columbus for their “generous donation.”
The Brandon Knights of Columbus have been running their local Coats for Kids program for longer than a decade. Last year’s campaign was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
