The Ahwatukee JCPenney, 5050 E. Ray Road, was once again the site for the Seventh Annual Knights’ Kids event on Dec. 7. The Corpus Christ Knights of Columbus Council 10062 and In Country Viet Nam Veterans sponsored 42 students from the Frank Elementary School in Guadalupe for a morning of shopping for new clothing items.

Volunteers escorted each student throughout the store and helped with selecting items on a list provided by the school. Fundraising events and generous donations made to this cause in the name of both the Corpus Christi Knights of Columbus and the In Country Viet Nam Veterans supported the purchases. In addition to new clothing items from the Knights and the Vets, JCPenney treated each student to breakfast in the company break room. Employees from JCPenney also donated enough toys to this event so that each student would go home with a toy as well. This was a first for this event.
