Sponsor our Knights as they walk a mile in her shoes!

The Knights of Columbus (Ascension council) will be participating as a team in the 2nd Annual Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event October 16th, 9-11 a.m., Downtown Newark at the square. The walk will raise much needed funds to pay for the safe housing for central Ohio women, ages 18-25, who have aged out of foster care and/or been trafficked.

Go to pages.fundeasy.com/5325888 to make a donation. You’re also welcome to join our team and walk with our Knights.

The event is hosted by Kingdom Pillars Strong Tower which is a safe home for these women in our community.  Wholeness and help in a place to call home!
