Knights of Columbus of St. Joseph Catholic Church recently donated $560 to benefit developmnetally disabled clients at McCall's Chapel School. The contribution was from Knights of Columbus' annual Tootsie Roll Giveaway.

 McCall’s Chapel is widely known as an outstanding effort at providing positive living, learning and earning conditions for developmentally disabled clients in their care.

As the visionary Oneal Netheland put in his recent book 'Miracles at McCall’s,' “We are in the business of dealing with the lives of 'special people' ... individuals who did not get an even start.  Our mission is to provide for life, a home-like environment for them where they can grow and develop to their full potential.”  The concepts of cottage living and intermediate care are two of the successful ways McCalls puts this mission into practice.

This roots for this endeavor go back as far as 1884.

This year's annual event takes place May 14 at Wal-Mart SuperCenter.
