ID DRive September 13th & 14th

Columbus Intellectual Disabilities (Tootsie Roll) Drive will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday September 13th -15th  

 

The Intellectual Disabilities or "Tootsie Roll" Fund Drive is one of the most recognizable activities that the Knights of Columbus do. The funds generated from this drive are used to support local programs which help people with special learning needs.

 

When you see a Knight in a yellow vest asking for donations outside a local establishment, and you receive a Tootsie Roll, remember it’s more than a “Tootsie Roll Drive.” It’s a chance to provide people with intellectual and physical disabilities more resources to live a happy life.
