Every year, Knights of Columbus organizations from across the state conduct their annual Tootsie Roll Drives for the benefit of people with disabilities.

The people served by Developmental Services of Northwest Kansas have been many of the fortunate recipients from this fundraiser.

For many years, the generosity of the Knights have allowed us to offer additional support to those we serve through a variety of ways. One of those ways is DSNWKs Consumer Medical Fund. This fund was established due to the contributions made through the K of C Tootsie Roll Drive.

Thanks to the Knights, DSNWK has been able to assist individuals with disabilities with the cost of medical items and care that are not covered by Medicaid such as dental expenses and adaptive equipment.

So as the area K of Cs gear up for this annual fundraiser, we would like to take the time and wish all of them the best of luck and encourage everyone to stop and support their efforts. We truly appreciate their kindness and support.
