2014 Intellectual Disabilities Drive

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Tootsie RollThe Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities

The Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities, also previously known as the Tootsie Roll Drive, is probably the Knights of Columbus’ best-known national fund-raiser. Unlike fundraising done by other organizations, 100% of the money raised through the Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities goes to help people with intellectual disabilities. The Knights do not use a hard sell approach to collect money; they merely stand (or sit) near the entrance to businesses wearing a red and yellow apron designating them as a K of C fundraiser. Most people know about the annual drive and the great work of the Knights of Columbus, and will donate without any solicitation. In return they receive a “thank you” from the Knight and an offer of a Tootsie Roll to those who donate.

Dates & Locations for 2014 Drive

September 19 – 21

St. John the Evangelist’s Knights of Columbus and the Ladies Auxiliary will be offering Tootsie Rolls outside the Jewel store and the Post Office on Irving Park Road, the corner of Park Blvd. & Irving, and the Walmart on Barrington Road on the morning and afternoon of Friday September 19th and Saturday September 20th, and after all the Masses on the weekend of September 20t/21st at St. John’s.

If you are interested in purchasing one or more bricks of 50 Tootsie Rolls for Halloween treats, please contact Adam Kanyuh, Chairman for the drive, to place an order. The cost should be around $10 each if the same as in past years.

Please support this worthy cause.

Streamwood Summer Celebration Success

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

SSC BingoJob Well Done, Ladies

Once again, the Ladies Auxiliary members were on hand helping out during the Streamwood Summer Celebration.    Many of our Ladies are active in several community organizations.  If you were at the fair, you probably saw them throughout the park, not just at the Bingo Tent.

From what we could tell, everyone seemed to be having a great time at the summer celebration.  The weather was a mixed bag, with cool temperatures to start out the weekend, then hot and humid and finally back to cool temps on Sunday evening.

Thank you to all who helped the Knights in the Bingo Booth. Your support in working the booth and playing Bingo is a tribute to what we are about – being there for each other
