Following their 2017 Tootsie Roll drive, the Knights of Columbus Howard Lesch Council 7667 donated to The Arc of the Emerald Coast and two other local charities serving persons with disabilities. The Knights beat their 2016 donation and were able to give more than $600 dollars to The Arc of the Emerald Coast, Special Olympics and Silver Sands School.

"This group is amazing, and we count on their support each year to help us in our mission to provide a path from disability to capability,” said Donna Tashik, director of community development for The Arc of the Emerald Coast.
