Have a Heart, Inc. is pleased to announce that the local Knights of Columbus, Council 4902, has once again chosen their organization to receive close to $1000.00 from their 2017 Tootsie Roll Drive through their program “Helping People with Intellectual Disabilities”. The Knights of Columbus, at the state and local level, has long supported Have a Heart, Inc. whose mission it is to provide support for families with physically and/or developmentally disabled loved ones. The local and state Knights of Columbus organization provides support through donations, including approving grant requests every year since 2011. Because of their generosity, the small non-profit has been able to purchase cookware, a dishwasher, refrigerator, and microwave for our Weekend Respite Program. Last year, new gutters were installed on the Adult Day Program building to stop the leaking in the basement, and a rotted window was replaced. These improvements fell outside of the HAH budget, but were necessary to the upkeep of the HAH buildings. This year, the generous Knights of Columbus donation will be added our Fall Fund Fest list of donors at the platinum level. All of the proceeds from the October 14th festival will be earmarked for the purchase of adaptive equipment for the gym which was completed in 2016 through generous donations from local citizens, foundations, and the Otto Bremer Trust. The gym will be open to the public once the adaptive equipment is purchased and installed.
