K of C Charities accepting donations to assist the relief efforts

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan — one of the strongest typhoons in history — which devastated the Philippines, the Knights of Columbus is donating $250,000 to assist in relief efforts in that country.

The New Haven-based Knights of Columbus has strong ties to the Philippines, where it has had a presence since 1905 and today counts hundreds of thousands of members.

"As we work to assist those who have suffered so much in the Philippines, they will also remain in our prayers," said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. "The Knights of Columbus has a long tradition of charitable service in the Philippines, and our efforts there on behalf of those affected will continue in that spirit. Locally and internationally, we are committed to helping the people of the Philippines rebuild their lives."

Those seeking to assist with the relief efforts can donate to the Knights of Columbus Charities Philippine Disaster Relief Fund at

Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc., is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and 100 percent of all donations collected by Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc., will be used for disaster relief in the Philippines.

Founded in 1882 in New Haven, Conn., the Knights of Columbus is one of the most active charitable organizations in both the United States and the Philippines. Last year, Knights worldwide donated more than $167.5 million and 70 million hours to charitable causes — including donating substantial amounts of money and time to disaster relief following Hurricane Sandy; the explosion in West, Texas; and the Oklahoma tornadoes.
