Winfield Family of Narragansett

At our June 14, 2021 council meeting, we decided to assist a local family in need of support.  10 year old Scotlyn Winfield, one of 8 children of Jim & Terryn Winfield of Narragansett, was stricken by a rare form of cancer.  This has placed a huge financial burden on the family and they struggle to meet basic family needs like putting food on the table or gas in the car to take Scotlyn to her chemotherapy treatments.  More details on the family plight can be found HERE.


We are launching a Stop & Shop gift card drive to help this family, effective immediately, through July 12th.

The council has agreed to match all member cash, check or gift card donations, dollar for dollar, to a maximum of $500 in total.  All cash proceeds will be used to purchase Stop & Shop gift cards for the family.


How can you help?  

1) Purchase a Stop & Shop gift card yourself and give it to one of the council officers by July 12th

2) Write a check or make a cash contribution.  Checks should be made payable to KofC 5295.  Checks can be mailed to Jim Hopkins, 520 Big Water Rd, Wakefield, RI  02879 or given to any council officer along with any cash donations

3) Make an online contribution by clicking on the PayPal Donate button below.


That's what the Knights of Columbus are all about.
