For the past 36 years Knights of Columbus across the state have given away Tootsie Rolls and accepted donations which are given to benefit people with intellectual disabilities.  

   All of the funds raised in Crookston go to the DAC and the ODC to assist with their programs. They also contribute to the Fall Classic of the Special Olympics which benefits athletes from Polk County and northwest Minnesota.

    The annual event is sponsored by the Minnesota Knights of Columbus each year.  

    Watch for the KCs through May 11 and enjoy a Tootsie Roll.  Donation cans are located throughout participating businesses in town.
