On Christmas Eve, a terrific group of volunteers donated their time to help raise money for the Soldiers To The Summits program. Working in two hour shifts, our community "Bagged for Tips" at the local Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World. By simply standing at the cash registers and explaining what S2S is about, we raised over $2,000 for the upcoming program!
Never having done this before, we had modest expectations and they were greatly exceeded. But even better, was my opportunity to meet and speak with people who were genuinely interested in what we are trying to do for our injured soldiers. One little boy in particular, named John, stands out in my mind. Read Jana Zunich's touching blog post to find out why.
Here are some photos from the day. I'd like to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped out! If you couldn't attend, perhaps you could match John's $4 contribution.
Happy New Year!
