Knox County Chaplains Requesting Help

The Knox Community Chaplains are mobilizing in response to the Declaration of National Emergency by the President.

We have a number of children in Knox County, Ohio who will be missing out on three weeks of meals they received from their schools. In order to help our county with this situation, KC3/IAOCC is asking for donations of money (preferred method) or non-perishable food items (see list below). KC3 will be purchasing/collecting the non-perishable food items and then distributing bags once a week to the above children and families in need.
If you are in need of food during this extended time
off school, please contact Knox Community
Chaplain Corps at 419-455-5616 to sign up for a
food bag with items for breakfast, lunch, and
snacks. These will be pre-packaged items!
Bags can be picked up on March 19, March 26, and
April 2 between noon and 4:30 at The Chaplain
House: 209 N. Mulberry Street. Please call to sign
up so we know how many we will need!
Money donations are the preferred method for donations and can be made in the following ways:
1. Online: and click the “Donate” Button

Note: the website will say “Donate to Seneca Community Chaplain Corps” but please know that the money will go to our local families.

2. Mail payments to:
