To assist the less fortunate in our community, the Rockaway Council #2672, Knights of Columbus conducted their annual food drive during November 2003 culminating on November 25, with local supermarket donations and transporting the goods to St. Gertrude’s Church.

Volunteers at St. Gertrude’s divided the food for need families. Cash donations at the council provided Father Brendan with some funds to purchase additional turkeys. Generous food donations from Key Food and Waldbaums greatly enhanced the quantity and variety of foods brought to the parish.
