Most recently, Knockout donated over $20,000 worth of termite prevention and protection to Nassau County’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums for use at Old Bethpage Village Restoration.

Katz is a founding member and a current Board member of LIREG (The Long Island Real Estate Group). LIREG was formed in 2004 to encourage networking between Long Island Real Estate Developers, owners and the allied trades, and to raise funds for charitable real estate projects on Long Island.
In June 2012 Katz was appointed the Long Island Chairman of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC LI).

When & Where
Long Island's Champions for Familes benefits RotaCare!
RotaCare: Free Health Care for People in Need
Founded in 1992 by members of the Mineola‐Garden City Rotary Club, RotaCare was created to serve the needs of the uninsured on Long Island. It began when a group of concerned volunteers met at the Mary Brennan Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead. Many of these volunteers recognized that in addition to food, the medical needs of their clients were not met adequately by the healthcare system. Through the collaborative efforts of the Rotary Club, local healthcare professionals, area residents, and Mercy Hospital, a “MASH” team was formed to operate weekly at the soup kitchen. RotaCare was born. Since its inception, RotaCare has remained a Rotary District project and supported by concerned companies, organizations and individuals to sustain its good works and benefits to the community by providing free health care to people in need. In 2007, RotaCare expanded its scope again, and moved to larger quarters at the A. Holly Patterson Extended Family Care Facility in Uniondale.
