WHITE MOUNTAINS — Steve Burdick, President of the Navajo County Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteers, with Sheriff K. C. Clark, announce the conclusion of their holiday fund-raising effort.
The group raised $1,000 and split the funds between St. Vincent DePaul and the White Mountain Fire Fighters Association for their respective holiday food basket drives.
The SAV held a rummage sale this summer at Blue Ridge High School and a Texas Hold-Em Poker night at White Mountain Lake.
“The purpose of holding these events,” said Burdick and Jim Normandin, “was to raise money for the non-profit SAVs to buy new radios and equipment.
“Due to the success of these events, along with other money donated, we re very pleased to present $200 to the Love Kitchen, and $500 (each) to St. Vincent DePaul and the White mountain Fire Fighters Association.”
Burdick and Normandin also said they accumulated funds through providing security at events such as Parades, car shows, house watches, “and much more.”
The money they donated, they said, can be used to purchase food and Christmas Gifts by the three organizations for those in need “during these tough times.”
All four organizations are looking for volunteers to help with their efforts, said Normandin.
