Kent-Sussex Industries Inc. received a $2,000 donation from the Knights of Columbus, St. Joseph Council in Milford.

The Knights of Columbus raises funds to support citizens who have a disability. The St. Joseph Council and other local councils participate in an annual Tootsie Roll campaign when donations are solicited to help those with intellectual or physical disabilities. Council members gather at various store locations giving out Tootsie Rolls and encouraging people to make a donation. They also have Tootsie Rolls and donation jars in some local businesses. The next Tootsie Roll campaign will run from October through March 2018.

The St. Joseph Council and KSI thanked Milford area businesses for permitting solicitation, including Ace Hardware, Big Lots, C and K Nails, Cypress Liquors, Irish Rose, Milford Senior Center, O’Neill’s Liquors, Redner’s Market, Sears and Southern States.
