When you see Knights in yellow vests that read “Helping People with Intellectual Disabilities,” you should smile. When these Knights are holding their bright cans and collecting donations around town, they are helping to recognize the dignity of every person; For every donation, each donor is offered a piece of candy by the Knight present, most commonly a Tootsie Roll.
Every year, The Massachusetts State Council Knights of Columbus and surrounding local councils across the state participate in the annual tootsie roll fund raising over $275,000.00 a year to support people with intelectual disabilities across the commonwealth. Due to the global pandemic, we have decided to do this fundraising page to keep everyone safe and healthy. Please feel free to donate in anyway possible to help all of God's children who are intelectually disabled. Every dollar helps!
