How Our ID Drive Efforts Are Helping Local Madison Schools
On September 9th, 2022, members of the Knights of Columbus Council 10232 and 17519 visited the Discovery Middle School special ed classroom to meet the teachers and children, and to see how they have benefited from the funds generated by the Tootsie Roll 5k.
In 2021, funds raised from the race were given to the Discovery Middle School special education teachers for purchasing equipment for their classroom. They were also used to fund a coffee cart for the Panther Perks program. Special ed students use the cart to sell coffee to faculty and staff while learning communication skills, as well as counting money and making change.
