Our Foothill Civitan friends have been keeping busy with different causes. After initiating three new members — Ann Marie Coppen, Muguet Fonteboa and Judy Torres — during their Awards and Installation in September, they have hit the floor running.
They were out in force to assist with the SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) Walk. The SMA Walk, they were told, raised about $75,000. Early in the first quarter they launched their first Internet fundraising project for “Operation Phone Home.” Their net profit was $700, with which they bought “Phone Home” phone cards for our deployed troops.
They also raised funds by participating in a recycling project. Foothill members assisted with the silent auction for BCR “a place to grow” during their holiday program. Another group of Foothill Civitan members served punch and doughnuts to participants at BCR’s TYRO Holiday dance.
