As most of you know the St. James the Apostle Knights of Columbus Council #5806 participates in the annual ID (Tootsie Roll) Drive and solicits donations one weekend in September out on the streets of Glen Ellyn. The donations are forwarded on to state approved charities that rely on donations to conduct their services to those in need, specifically the intellectually disabled (ID) population. The charities that our council donates to are local.

This year’s ID drive took place, but in a much compromised form due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although some Knights were out on the streets, you can continue to help our cause by ordering Tootsie Rolls directly from the Knights.  

For a donation of $10, you can get a box of 50 Tootsie Rolls. These Tootsie Rolls would make a great Trick or Treat gift this Halloween. If this appeals to you, please contact Ray Klein at (630) 858-1237or Ray will get your Tootsie Rolls to you and collect your donation. Cash will be accepted, but you can also write a check made out to Knights of Columbus Charities.

Helping the Knights in this way will give you the satisfaction of supporting some of the neediest of God’s children.
