Leeds Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive Charity Fundraiser This Weekend

Friday & Saturday, October 1-2 | 9a-6p | Bass Pro Shop and Food Giant

As you know, the Leeds Knights of Columbus will hold their annual Intellectual Disabilities Drive (Tootsie Roll Drive) at Bass Pro Shop and Food Giant Oct 1-2 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. The Alabama State K of C has held this annual event for the last 40 years (excluding last year). During that time over 5.8 million dollars has been raised for Alabama Special Education school children.

100 % of the donated funds reach the local Special Ed children and are used for various materials and capital needs. Here in Leeds, Moody and Odenville, the generous population has donated more than $8,600 to our local Special Ed departments and Special Olympics.

Leeds K of C is a tax deductible organization accepting donations from individuals and businesses for this charitable event. We will gratefully accept checks payable to: K of C Council 5597-Leeds until October 31, 2021. Please indicate that the check is for the Intellectual Disabilities Drive and send to:

Keith Kennedy, Chancellor, K of C Council 5597, 3605 Forest Trace, Trussville, AL 35173
