Tootsie Roll Drive Delights a Local Youth


Council: 13181 - SABATTUS

Project Description:

Each Year, Council #13181 participates in the annual Tootsie Roll Drive, and we are proud to be able to give back to a needy individual or group in our community. Stephanie Michaud, wife of Grand Knight Robert Michaud is a Special Education Teacher, and is keenly aware of the needs within our community. In her previous time as a School Board member, she shared this concern with the RSU#4 Superintendent, Andy Carlton, and asked if he might be able to select a worthy candidate in our community to receive our Tootsie Roll Drive donations. For the past few years, we have worked closely with Mr. Carlton to select a qualified youth in our community where these funds would do the most good.

This year, a seventh grade student by the name of Alex Inman was selected. Alex was completely surprised, when Grand Knight Robert Michaud and son Brother Knight Xavier Michaud stopped by to deliver checks for $500 just after Thanksgiving. There is no doubt that these funds made his day and meant a lot to him just as we entered the Christmas Season. Being able to positively impact youths with special needs in our community is a powerful way to celebrate life and share with others what it means to be a Knight.
