Knights of Columbus Amador County Council 1849, Annual Tootsie Roll Drive
Amador County, CA ... The Knights of Columbus Amador County Council 1849, held its annual Tootsie Roll Drive (officially known as the Intellectual Disabilities Fundraiser), at several locations in Amador County during October of 2013. This drive, coordinated through the Columbian Charities, is identified to direct funds to the organization responsible for educating local citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each year the Amador Knights have designated, The Arc of Amador and Calaveras, as the recipient of these donations. This year, through the generosity of all Amador County citizens, The Arc received $2,505.96. “Thank you all for your generosity and continued support of this charity. We are helping people to reach their stars” Mark Koenig with the Knights of Columbus Amador County Council 1849.
