The Houghton Knights of Columbus recently ran a Knights of Columbus Food for Families food drive seeking cash donations for area food pantries.
The Houghton #3905 council teamed up and matched cash donations with Holy Trinity Schools, who raised $900 at the elementary school in West Point, as well as holding special collections at mass in Houghton and St. Paul.
In total, the Houghton Council donated $1,500 to the Ft. Madison Food Pantry, and $1,500 to the Fellowship Cup in Mt. Pleasant.
Over the past four years, the Houghton K of C council has donated over $9,000 to local food pantry?s, along with non-perishable food items.
