BURBANK JAYCEES GET PHYSICAL
The Burbank Jaycees are no strangers when it comes to volunteerism. Last weekend, members showed muscle and manpower with their assistance with the Burbank Temporary Aid Center's Postal Food Drive.
With the drive being one of BTAC's biggest food drives of the year, Jaycee volunteers played a vital role in making this year's drive a success. Members helped take nonperishable foods donated by Burbank residents and collected by postal carriers off mail trucks and helped sort and place the food in BTAC's storeroom.
An afternoon of hard work and camaraderie will help to assure that those in need in our community can receive the help they need. Do you feel like helping? Join the Jaycees for the annual Burbank Relay for life at 9 a.m. June 23 and 24 at Robert Gross Park, 2814 W. Empire Ave.
The Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraiser, with more than 4,200 events nationwide and is an overnight team event that raises awareness of cancer, celebrates survivors, remembers those lost to the disease and raises funds to fight cancer through research, education, advocacy and patient services.
Teams are required to keep at least one team member walking the track during the 24 hours as an ode to the consciousness that cancer never sleeps. In addition to the relay, there will be various booths, displays and entertainment for the kids.
For information on how to join the team, donate to the cause or to learn more about the event, contact Teresa Sanchez at (805) 558-5896 or tmsanchez0608yahoo.com.
