Chairman Art Junker
Program for People with Developmental Disabilities – aka “The Tootsie Roll Drive”
No, the Knights of Columbus have not taken to selling candy and have no ties to Tootsie Rolls or any other candy bar, or their Manufacturer!
This campaign, often referred to as the “Tootsie Roll Drive” is really a “Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities” The nickname is due to the nature of the fundraiser, in which Knights distribute specially marked Tootsie Rolls, in exchange for donations used to support programs geared to improve the Quality of Life for people with Disabilities.
(Don’t forget to read the information on the inside of the Tootsie Roll wrapper!!)
The Solanus Casey Council 1632 will hold the Annual Tootsie Roll Drive May 3-5, 2019
KC members, family, and friends will be seeking donations around the Stillwater area in exchange for a tootsie roll.
This is a fund raiser for persons with special needs in our area including: St. Croix Valley Lumber Jacks Special Olympics, ESR, Courage Center St Croix, LADDA, and St Croix Trail
Blazers Special Olympics.
Thank you very much for volunteering to take a 2 hour shift.
