First, I want to thank Safeway for letting me put a table at their store this last week. Then, I want to thank all the extremely charitable people that went through the door I was at and not only placed money in my donation jar but gave me the encouragement and support to send me to the moon. This community’s pledges and donations for me in regards to my scholarship programs with HoWL and continued support of me through HoWL these last couple years has really meant the world to me.
I won first place for most garbage collected (57.5 bags) and most cash and pledges for HoWL ($1,220), which is my second year in a row. Also, as a family we won for the most garbage collected with 117.5 bags, which is the second time in three years, too.
I am very excited now because I have earned a scholarship for the one HoWL trip I wanted to go on and it is “Peer Leader Training: Red Mountain.”
I think HoWL is a vital part of our community and I am glad to be a part of it, and I just want to let you know your support is really appreciated. And I want to thank you again for your generosity and support.
