Press Release:

The Knights of Columbus Council #8097 will host “Not So Silent Knights,” a dance and toy donation drive on Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 8PM to 12 Midnight (doors open at 7PM) at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 1619 Erskine Street in Lubbock.

The event is a Halloween-themed costume party, with prizes for the best costumes and door prizes. Entry for the dance is a donation of a new toy for a boy or girl (ages 6 to 14 years), and a donation of five non-perishable food items. Those without a toy and food donation will be admitted to the event at $20 per person.

Toy donations will be distributed during the Christmas holiday to youth clients already enrolled in programs at Catholic Charities-Diocese of Lubbock. These include children who are part of the Kinship Navigation Program, the Family & Youth Success (FAYS) program, and the National Family Support Network (NFSN) program. The Kinship Navigation program serves families who are raising family children who are not biologically theirs, for example, grandparents raising grandchildren. The FAYS program provides free case management and counseling to youth 0-17 and their families. NFSN provides virtual and in-person parenting classes. All programs are free, and along with other Catholic Charities’ programs, serve Lubbock and 29 surrounding counties. More information about Catholic Charities can be found at
