LAMB PROGRAM
Tom Gavin,  Director




    LAMB, which stands for “Least Among My Brethren” is a program which raises
    funds to assist people with intellectual disabilities in North Carolina. The individual
    Knights of Columbus Councils are responsible for collecting the funds. Eighty-five
    percent of the proceeds are awarded by the local councils to agencies which provide
    training or services to mentally handicapped individuals. The remainder is
    distributed state-wide to similar agencies by the LAMB Foundation of North Carolina.

    Operation LAMB has raised over $17.5 million dollars for citizens of North Carolina
    with intellectual disabilities.  This entire amount was raised without a single paid
    employee thanks to the more than 14,000 Knights state-wide, who along with their
    friends and families spend long hours giving away Tootsie Rolls and accepting
    donations.  Donations are also received from community businesses.

    Council #9039 holds fund-raisers at area retail stores throughout the year.
