Tootsie Roll Drive

To Our Friends and Local Merchants,

 This September 20th & 21th marks the 47th annual Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive to benefit those with physical and intellectual disabilities. Last year we raised over $4,500.00 to benefit local organizations such as Kreider Services, Illinois Special Olympics, and the Lee County Special Education. This year’s goal is $5,000.00 or more and we cannot do it without your help.

To meet our goal we are asking for your help with this year’s Drive in hopes your donation will offset the cost of the Tootsie Rolls. Each case of Tootsie Rolls costs us $19.50 and we order approximately 40 cases for a total expenditure of nearly $800.00. Your donations of one or more case prices will allow us give more to those deserving children who need our help and cannot help themselves.

Please consider making a tax deductable donation to the Knights of Columbus, 506 W. Third St. Dixon, IL 61021 (Attention: Patrick Gorman) OR donate online at .

As our way of saying “Thank-You” to the merchants that donate, we will put your corporate logo on our website with a link to your homepage or a copy of your business card as a way of generating extra advertising for your business. Please include a copy of your business card with your check.

We need your help to make this campaign the best ever for these kids. Please feel free to contact myself or Luke Dixon with questions, concerns, or even to volunteer to help, as that is always needed.
