Knights of Columbus collect hams for food bank

The Knights of Columbus at Holy Trinity Church in El Dorado Hills hosted an Easter Ham Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank. Holy Trinity’s Knights of Columbus collected almost 1,300 pounds of hams and more than $400 in financial donations to support the Food Bank.

“Knights of Columbus has proven to be a steward for the Food Bank and is committed to the at-risk population,” said Mike Sproull, Food Bank founder.

“The Food Bank is proud of its partnership with Holy Trinity’s Knights of Columbus. They are dedicated to our community and have organized and implemented several successful food drives to benefit the Food Bank, we are grateful for their generosity and continued partnership,” said Carey Fong, Food Bank communications and development director.

“The success of this food drive could not have been possible without the efforts of many people especially Pat Shields-Maher of the Holy Trinity’s Human Concerns ministry and, of course, the generosity of the parishioners. The Knights of Columbus are truly proud to be committed to continue efforts with the Food Bank to help in this extremely important issue of local hunger,” said Art Aguilar of the Knights of Columbus.
