Wal-Mart and Sam’s
Fundraiser now-July 19

Wal-Mart and Sam’s has a six week fundraising event that runs through July 19. This year, we are proud to partner up with some great vendors for our food trucks event. These vendors are more than willing to jump on board, donating their time and 10-20 percent of their sales. Our Child Sponsor this year is Kristen Daniel. She is a Chester County native who is currently in Lebonheur Children’s Hospital. Your donations at our location Wal-Mart will help her and other children that are in the hospital. There are multiple ways to help. You can make a donation at the register or purchase food from the local food truck event. As always, thank you for support and participation in this event. Cookies For Cancer by Beth Everett is very proud to be part of this fundraising event. Being from Chester County, I hope you all come out and have lunch and desserts with us on July 10 and 18. We will be serving chicken pot pie and dessert for $5 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or until food runs out. We will also have cookies, candy, pies and other desserts for sale, too. Hope to see you all and remember to keep Kristen Daniel and her family in your prayer’s.
