Irmo Knights collect food and funds

IRMOKnights of Columbus Council 6892 raised $3,139.44 and collected 3,388 pounds of food during its first “Forty Cans for Lent,” food drive.

The project benefits the various pro­grams of Our Lady of the Hills Church and its St. Vincent de Paul Society to feed the poor in the parish, and com­munity. Grand Knight Stephen Szy­manski directed the initiative with Knights Arnold Farias, John Lisic, Joe Charland and Peter Zeef.

The annual program asks parishio­ners to donate either a canned good or a $1 for each of the 40 days of Lent.
