Give Back at the Tootsie Roll Drive

As a family-owned and operated company, Porter Pipe puts our partnership with our customers, vendors and community above all else. Giving back is in our roots, and it all started with Porter Pipe’s founder, Ralph Porter. Over 55 years ago, Ralph was also one of the founders of the Tootsie Roll Drive for the Knights of Columbus, a national fundraiser to aid handicapped children. Today, the Tootsie Roll Drive is still as popular as ever.

This year, on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12, the Knights will be taking to the streets of Addison to collect donations for this incredibly worthy cause. Porter Pipe’s very own Nyles Nykaza will be the Corner Captain for the corner of Lake St. and Rohlwing Rd., and we’re eager to support him as he carries on this important tradition.

We invite all members of our team as well as our vendor, customer and community partners to join Nyles in supporting the Tootsie Roll Drive. Come out to help collect donations for an hour or two or drop in a donation yourself—every little bit counts!

Of course, we will be taking extra measures to ensure the safety of all who participate. This is a great opportunity to give back in a year when we each need to be reminded of what we’re truly thankful for. We hope to see you at the drive!
