     ‘CAMPAIGN FOR PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES’

               (From Supreme District Deputy Reminders)

One of the most popular and successful programs conducted by Knights of Columbus state and local councils for the benefit of people with intellectual disabilities is the fund-raiser in which councils collect donations outside stores and on street corners. In appreciation, the donor is offered a piece of candy, often a Tootsie Roll. The high visibility of this program has led to the campaign being referred to as the "Tootsie Roll Drive." The nickname is understandable, but misleading. The Knights of Columbus has no official tie to Tootsie Rolls or their manufacturer. Many councils participate in the same fund-raising drive, but distribute other items. References to this program should highlight the good the money does, not advertise candy. It is strongly recommended that this project be promoted as the "Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities.
