Knights of Columbus Council #2191 Tootsie Roll Drive

K C Council #2191 representing St. Peter & Holy Cross parishes are raising funds to help local people with intellectual disabilities. Please help by donating to the 52nd Annual Tootsie Roll Drive.

$2,283.30 of $16,000

For more than 50 years our Knights of Columbus Council, #2191 has participated in the Tootsie Roll Drive which raises money to help people with special needs.  This year we have added an online donation option to offset the challenges we face due to online shopping (reduced foot traffic) and credit card vs. cash transactions.  

Your donation regardless of size goes a long way to help those in need.  Last year for example we donated over $12,000.00 to local organizations who help children and adults with special learning and life needs.  The non-profits receiving the funds included Valley Sheltered Workshop, Batavia; Marklund, Geneva; Association for Individual Developent (AID), Aurora; Special Camps for Special Needs, Winfield; Fox Valley Special Recreation Assoc. (FVSRA), Aurora.

Our goal this year is $16,000.00.  You can help us reach this goal in 2 ways:

1. Make a donation of any amount, ie; $5.00, $10.00, $20.00 or more. No amount is too small or too large.

2. Help us "Spread the Word" by forwarding this link 


to your family and friends.  Ask them to help this great cause.  If you're interested helping us collect the weekend of our Drive, September 16-18, 2022 please visit our website www.kc2191.org and click on the Event Signup Scheduler. 

Prefer to donate by check?  Make checks payable to "Knights of Columbus #2191" and in memo area write  "Tootsie Roll Drive".  Mail your contribution to:  Knights of Columbus #2191, c/o Co-Chair Jim Keane,  6 N. Barton Trl., Batavia, IL 60510.

Thanks for your support,
