The Queen of Peace Knights of Columbus are true champions for the children we serve. For a second time in the span of a few months, they came together to install a playground for CCS. Their first project is already in use by children attending preschool at the Seymour Center, and now they have delivered play equipment to St. Joseph Family Shelter. Early one October morning, the Knights met at one of our affordable housing complexes to take down an existing playground that was no longer in use. They loaded their trucks to transport the playground to Mount Angel for assembly, and with awesome teamwork and coordination, finished the entire project, from transfer to installation, in just a few hours.
The Knights are well known for their service in the community and to those in need. The Mount Angel Knights are also regular volunteers and major supporters of the Shelter and Mission Benedict. Their shared dedication to service is helping CCS provide a fun and happy place for children and families to live while overcoming adversity.
