The Freeport Knights of Columbus would like to thank the local Freeport parish community for their generous charitable spirit with two recent drives to aid several great causes. The recent drive to support intellectual disabilities (Tootsie Roll drive) netted just over $5,200 to support The Presence Life Center, Malcolm Eaton, and Special Olympics in the Freeport area. On October 6, our Pork Chop dinner and other contributions netted us $1,500 towards the Madonna Renewal Center. Our council goal is to continue to support the parish and Freeport area community. Any Catholic male over 18 interested in becoming a part of the Knights of Columbus, please contact Tom Willison at 815-275-7111.
