Knights of Columbus Council 7054 Awards $1,000 to The Arc Eastern CT

The Gales Ferry chapter of the Knights of Columbus awarded $1,000 to The Arc Eastern Connecticut from the proceeds of its 2018 Tootsie Roll Drive. Thanks to the continued support of the Knights of Columbus, The Arc can provide health and fitness programs and activities, including Special Olympics, to over 170 participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) from eastern Connecticut. The Arc’s Community Life & Advocacy program also offers self-advocacy, socialization skills, and civic engagement groups that help individuals with IDD live their best lives.
