Torch Club (youth 9-12) and Keystone (youth ages 13-18), the Boys' and Girls' volunteer clubs based out of the Hill Air Force Base Youth Center, are raising money for Japan and we need your help!
The two groups have teamed up with Col. Joseph Scherrer, 75th Mission Support Group commander, to raise a goal amount of $750 to buy soccer balls and baby dolls for children in Japan who have lost everything.
In order to achieve this, the groups have decorated more than 200 envelopes and tied them to "Cherry Trees" representative of Japanese cherry blossoms. People who wish to donate to the cause can take an envelope off the tree, place their desired donation in the envelope, and bring the sealed envelope to either the Youth Center (Building 883) or Child Development Center (Building 470).
We would greatly appreciate donations of five dollars or more so we can reach our goal but anything will work. You can find our donation trees at the Youth Center, CDC, Base Chapel and Commissary. One hundred percent of funds raised are going to Japan. So please help; Japan needs all the help it can get.
We will be taking the donations through April 30.
