A great big THANK YOU to all who helped out with the Tootsie Roll Drive we could not achieved this amount of money without your help. So far we have raised $5,104.68 to date and have sent requests to businesses in town for donations. When going down to the KC hall for my first shift I asked myself why am I doing this as I have plenty of other things I could be doing instead of this. Well I did my first shift of collections and as I was driving back to the hall a warm fuzzy feeling came over me that what I had just completed made me feel good inside and realized why I volunteered my time. After talking to some of the people on the same shift they said they felt the same way.
May They Rest In Peace
