KC Phonaton raises nearly $57,000



The Knights of Columbus Phonathon for persons of various abilities was on the threshold of its goal Wednesday.  Shelly Thompson says their Plymouth Countywide effort was a great success.

Thompson says donations to the cause came in unusual ways.

Follow up contacts will probably send the fundraising total over their challenge goal.

Thompson is grateful for the support of the Knights of Columbus effort Wednesday, including businesses which donated food to the volunteers who made the telephone contacts.

Thompson issued an invitation for people to see the work that the Life Skills Training Center does.

The Knights of Columbus effort seeks to contact everyone in Plymouth County on behalf of Life Skills.  It’s the major fundraiser for their organization every year.  Funds were also raised for Special Olympics.
