Developmental Disabilities 'Tootsie Roll' Drive


Brother Knights All,

Congratulations and thanks for a successful, hopefully safe and Coronavirus free DD Drive for 2020. It goes without saying that this has been a difficult year across virtually every dimension of life. You and your Council's active participation in this massive annual event provides sorely needed funds to many organizations whose daily mission is to assist those with developmental disabilities. Their reliance on funds from the KofC as well as I'm certain many other revenue sources is critical to their mission. Our own KofC Developmental Center at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St Louis is a huge benefactor of this drive. Above all, these organizations through their mission are bringing the healing hand of Christ Jesus to the parts of his body where it is needed.

Vivat Jesus!
