Thank You Letter

THANK YOU Kolping for your donations to this year’s Kolping Kicks Food Drive! This morning, volunteers counted, sorted, boxed, loaded and delivered 2,000 food items to the downtown food pantry at St. Nicholas Catholic Church. This pantry feeds 55 families, over a 100 people each week and was tremendously grateful for the much needed large donation. Your kindness will make such a difference! Special thanks to Kolping parents Dena McCaffrey & Joe Thompson; Kolping players Andrew Lane, Olivia Lane, Jacob Lane and Drew Kalton; and members of the U16 Lanzafame girls team for their time and hard work to make our food drive possible.

A very special thanks to Carrie Kalton who organized the event for our Club!!!
