Charles Baumbusch is the Event Chairman for this event
Our StMM KofC Council #15979 Brothers will be outside the Church Door Exits after Mass Sep 14/15 volunteering for the Knights of Columbus Annual Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities .
We will be giving away Tootsie Rolls and collecting Free Will donations for the Louisville Angels in Disguise 501(c)(3) Charity which supports and educates on the adoption of Down Syndrome Babies and older Children. Please be supportive of children with Intellectual Disabilities. Thanks in advance.
Over the past 48 years, the Knights of Columbus has raised and donated more than $415 million to programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
Among the larger gifts of time and money the Order makes annually is to Special Olympics and other programs for people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. The Knights'commitment to Special Olympics and to hundreds of grassroots programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities is an expression of our belief in the intrinsic worth of every human being.
The high visibility of this program has led to the campaign being referred to as the “Tootsie Roll Drive.” That nickname is understandable, but misleading. The Knights of Columbus has no official tie to Tootsie Rolls or their manufacturer.
