Shake the Bucket  

 

One of our signature charities we donate to is St. Michael's Special School located in the Irish Channel of New Orleans.  For a number of years the St. Dominic Knights of Columbus Shakes the Buckets for this worthy cause.  Over the last 10 years the Knights have raised over $20,000.00 for this very worthy cause.

Habitat for Humanity

 

One of the signature programs that the St. Dominic Knights of Columbus participates in is working with Habitat for Humanity on an annul service project.  These projects include rebuilding, demolition and renovation of houses that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina and a devastating tornado that struck in 2017.
