Knights’ Tootsie Rolls help people with intellectual disabilities

St. Patrick's Knights of Columbus Rick Hoesing, left, and Brandon Lauer. center, were talking Tootsie Rolls Friday afternoon at the Perry Fareway in the Knights' annual fundraiser for people with intellectual disabilities.

Members of the St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Knights of Columbus St. Jude Council 1243 will be very visible from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Perry grocery stores as they hand out Tootsie Rolls in their annual fundraiser for people with intellectual disabilities.

The Tootsie Roll-bearing Knights can be known by the bright yellow and red bib aprons they wear that bear the words, “Helping People with Intellectual Disabilities – Knights of Columbus.”

Chicago-based Tootsie Roll Industries has manufactured the mildly chocolate-flavored, taffy-like, non-melting candy since 1907.
