KOVAR, established in 1971 is a Virginia Knights of Columbus Charity that provides financial assistance through grants and home loans to tax exempt organizations that provide assistance to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

One of the ways that the Knights of Columbus generate money for this charity is through their Tootsie Roll Drive, where they hand out tootsie rolls for free with hopes of donations that will go directly to the charity to provide this much needed assistance to our fellow citizens with intellectual disabilities.

KofC Council 13860 Round Table members from Our Lady of the Blue Ridge Catholic Church conduct a Tootsie Roll Drive at the Annual BBQ held the Yoder’s Store in Madison, VA.
