The families of the Shower of Roses Knights of Columbus Council in Hilliards will take part in the 47th annual Tootsie Roll Drive to raise money for the mentally impaired Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
K of C families will be at Harding’s Market in Wayland, Leppink’s Market in Dorr, the Bradley Four Corners at 10th Street and 129th Avenue and at St. Therese Church after 10:30 a.m. mass Sunday.
For every donation, each donor is offered a Tootsie Roll. Because of these little gifts of appreciation, the “Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities” has frequently been referred to as the “Tootsie Roll Drive.” It is a popular and successful fund-raiser conducted by Knights of Columbus councils. One hundred percent of the money raised goes to help adults and children with cognitive impairments.
Since 2016, the council has raised over $30,000 for various programs and charities that assist the mentally impaired throughout Allegan County and the State of Michigan.
