Place of Hope Ministries certainly has a strong ally in the Knights of Columbus Council of St. Cloud.

The charity was presented with a donation check for $6,000 earlier this  evening in the basement of the Place of Hope Chapel.

Herb Gross is a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 5548. He says reaching out to people in need is a passion.

The money is being put to new dining room tables and chairs for the shelter.

Place of Hope provides meals, shelter and resources to people and families facing homelessness.
