The success of Brotherhood In Action has spawned similar models of help within its founding fraternal groups. One such is the ‘Helping Hands’ committee of the Bethel Knights of Columbus.

On Saturday, September 14, a dozen men from Pavia Council, joined by a teenage niece of a knight, and a member of the masons arrived at a home in Bethel to sheetrock two rooms. The need was identified during Brotherhood In Action food deliveries to the family.

  While the labor, skilled and unskilled, was provided by the volunteers, the material was donated by Ring’s End Lumber.
