The 50th Annual
TOOTSIE ROLL DRIVE
SEPT. 20-22, 2019

The "Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities" or "Intellectual Disabilities Drive" is often referred to as the "Tootsie Roll Drive" because of the Tootsie Roll candy bars given out by the Knights to thank people for their donations. One of the most recognizable activities of the Knights of Columbus, funds collected from the I.D. Drive go to organizations to help support people with intellectual disabilities. Last year's proceeds were used to assist St. Alexander SPRED Program, Imagine Diving, Illinois Special Olympics, and other organizations. This year the Knights and other volunteers will be asking for your support the weekend of September 20-22. Watch for us Friday and Saturday on Harlem, Ridgeland, 127th Street, and Route 83. We'll be outside of St. Alexander after Masses Sunday morning. Please be generous. Thank you!
