Based on a recent report I got from Supreme, we have a lot of councils that have not sent in the 4584 (Partnership with Special Olympics) form. We need to get this form in from all councils by MARCH 9TH!
Last month, Supreme announced some changes coming to the Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities (CPID – “Tootsie Roll”) program. After more than two decades of supplying the aprons for the CPID, Developmental Services Center (DSC) has made the decision to cease production and supply. The Knights of Columbus are grateful to DSC for their countless years of service and support to the Order, the CPID program and the many charitable results the program produces. To help expand the program, the Supreme Council is introducing a newly designed money-collecting canister, new Tootsie Roll candy-wrapper design and a new vest!
This new vest (see below) will be available for purchase on Supplies Online beginning in March. The vests will be listed underneath the “Special Olympics” page (Faith in Action – Life Programs). A complete breakdown of costs is listed in the table below. Councils are encouraged to buy vests in bulk, which will result in significant cost savings. Councils may continue to use their current stock of yellow / red aprons but, will not be able to purchase more in the future.
The new vest features two large pockets on the front as well as a new slogan for the campaign – “Helping People with Special Needs”. This new slogan strives to promote all the tremendous work done with the CPID, while also being an option for other related programs such as “Special Olympics”, “Mass for People with Special Needs” or any program / initiative intended for Helping People with Special Needs! Please note, this new slogan does not replace the official name of the initiative- “Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities”. A Spanish-language version will also be available!
"Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt"
