KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS #8735 presented a check to The Arc on Wednesday, Aug. 3 for their programs at the organization. Knights of Columbus Treasurer Pat Grennell, is shown handing a donation check of $3,031.45 to Administrative Assistant of The Arc, Kim Walser.

The 70 member group, Knights of Columbus from Morrice, as well as helpers from the St. Mary’s church in Morrice raised the funds by their annual tootsie roll drive on the streets in March. “It was one of the best drives we have ever had,” commented Grennell.

Walser said the funds will be put to good use in the programs that The Arc provides for people with developmental disabilities in Shiawassee County. She spoke of a recent cooking program they have which teaches basic cooking skills to help individuals participate in and be fully included in the community. In addition, the funds will also be helping in the upcoming back-to-school programs. (Independent Photo/Elizabeth Wehman)
