Letter to the Editor

Can help (5/31)

Friday, May 31, 2002

I wanted to thank you for the publicity the Standard Democrat has given our effort for St. Jude's with the collection of aluminum cans.

From April 18 until May 20, we collected $704 from the sale of these cans for St. Jude's. That's a record!

I know that more people became aware of the fund-raiser after seeing the ad you so graciously ran last month. I could definitely see an increase in the cans being donated. I also want to take this opportunity to thank all those who are bringing their cans to the trailer on North Main Street. With this check, the total collected to date is over $6,000.

Your cans are making a difference to children who are suffering from this terrible disease.
