Thank you to all who helped, whether it was by your participation in Knights events, packing the food, distributing the food, or delivering the food. Because of your help the Knights were able to purchase food for 88 food baskets for Easter Christmas.
The Knights will need your continued support in 2018 so that those in need can be helped. Come to our events.

The Drive (commonly called “The Tootsie Roll Drive”) has been in existence since 1970. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning our council will be at Dierbergs on Lindbergh, at Handyman on Washington and Handyman on Lindbergh, at Shop and Save on Charbonier, and after Masses on Saturday evening and Sunday morning at Sacred Heard Church, at Saint Ferdinand Church, at Saint Sabina Church, and at Saint Rose Church. Volunteers will be wearing bright yellow vests, passing out Tootsie Rolls and collecting donations to help children with special needs.
Proceeds from the 2018 Tootsie Roll Drive will benefit the Knights of Columbus Developmental Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. The Knights Center provides comprehensive diagnosis, intervention family support and professional education services.
In 1981, the Knights Center was the first center in the region dedicated to children with intellectual developmental disorders, and in 2007 was designated as a Missouri Center for Autism by the Department of Mental Health. With our help the center serves over 2,500 children a year. Because of your generous efforts, the center can identify a child’s developmental disorder at an early age and prescribe early intervention treatment that allows each child to reach his or her fullest potential.
