Volunteers making a difference

One hundred and five volunteers came together and made a difference in the Springerville/Eagar area Saturday, June 8. Roads were adopted; the Becker Lake Wildlife Area “River Trail” received a new gravel surface; five homes of senior citizens were “adopted” and yard work done; 1,000 personal hygiene kits were assembled by LDS Youth Conference attendees; 750 pounds of peanut butter and jelly and 160 pounds of non-perishable food was collected and donated to the RV Cares and senior citizen food banks and to the RV Boys and Girls Club. Special thanks to Tucson Electric Power Community Action Team for preparing breakfast for all the volunteers and all business and private citizens who donated time, money and talent to make this day a success. This event was organized by the Round Valley Coalition for Family Values. The organization includes several faith groups, school representatives, non-profit clubs, and town police and council persons from both Springerville and Eagar. Developing community pride and helping others was the goal and we appreciate each and every volunteer the your help.
