In light of the challenges created by COVID-19 for many in our community, The Knights of Columbus, in collaboration with St. John the Evangelist Parish of Hopkinton and St. Cecilia Parish of Ashland are launching a Helping Hands Program to provide assistance to those who may need a little extra help during this difficult time.

We understand that social distancing, business closures, and limitations on food, medications and other critical supplies has created severe hardships for some in our community.

The Knights of Columbus want to help.

If you are in need of assistance with tasks such as:

  • Grocery shopping
  • Picking up medical prescriptions
  • Running local errands
  • Local travel for important events (such as doctor appointments)
  • Assistance with tasks at home please reach out to the Knights of Columbus.

Please note, this is not an emergency hotline. If you have urgent medical needs or require emergency services, please call 911. We are not able to provide any immediate emergency assistance.
