Help Hurricane Michael Victims

Dear Brother Knights,  

Thanks to your help, Knights accomplished so much in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

Now, your help is again urgently needed.

Hurricane Michael has battered Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, and it’s heading northeast.

As we send this email, more than 1 million homes have been damaged. Some are completely submerged by water, others completely flattened by 155mph winds or caught in uncontrolled fires. Hazardous conditions have closed off roads and cell towers have toppled, leaving thousands cut off from communication and help.

It’s the strongest hurricane to hit Florida's panhandle ever, and the strongest to hit Georgia since 1898. And in the Carolinas, 50-55 mph wind gusts and flash flooding are tearing through areas not yet recovered from Florence.

Our brother Knights, their families and communities need your support. No matter how much you give, your generosity and prayers can help us meet their needs in the days ahead.

Please DONATE TODAY. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts.
