Knights of Columbus Gales Ferry Council Donates Tootsie Roll Drive Funds to The Arc Eastern CT

The Gales Ferry Our Lady’s Shrine Council #7054 of the Knights of Columbus awarded $1,123.36-- the proceeds of its 2019 Tootsie Roll Drive—to The Arc Eastern Connecticut. Thanks to the continued support of the Knights of Columbus, The Arc’s Community Life & Advocacy component is able to provide a variety of community involvement programs, self-advocacy groups, and health and fitness activities, including Special Olympics, to over 170 participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) from eastern Connecticut. All The Arc’s programs stress equality of opportunity and choice, helping people with IDD live their best lives.
