2021 MI K of C Tootsie Roll Drive Recap Update
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations we had to adjust how we do this very crucial and important service of charity for those with mental disabilities. Thankfully with the grace of God and a loving and generous community we raised $2,573.86 for the Special Olympics and for the local Diocese of Saginaw SPRED program. This was all done at the 7-Elevens in the Thomas Township on the Friday of March 26th and after after all of the Masses on the weekend of April 17-18th. On behalf of your local K of C Father Davey Council 8808 and the State of Michigan K of C we thank you for your generosity and charity. Have a God blessed week.
On Monday, May 24, 2021 we were proud to present the check to Sister Elaine and Marcia, who operate the SPRED program in the Diocese of Saginaw, with the $2,000 check to the program.
