Thank you to all those who supported our football raffle this year and making it a success. Thank you and good luck.
The annual Tootsie Roll campaign supports the intellectually disabled and special olympics. We will collect donations and hand out tootsie rolls after all Masses and are asking members to help with the Mass you are attending. Younger kids and teenagers are welcome to help with the collections also. Our council underwrites all the costs, so 100% of money collected gets donated. 20% of collection go to the State council to support the Kansas State Special Olympics and 80% goes locally to the Down Syndrome Guild and the Lakemary Center. We can also accept online donations through our PayPal account by clicking here.
