NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Volunteers are holding a free fundraiser at St. Paul the Apostle Church Sunday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Money raised from the craft and vendor show will go toward Veterans 4, a non-profit organization that is currently helping with water supplies in Puerto Rico.
The group’s mission is to bring clean water and vital necessities to areas in need in Puerto Rico, and to help repair the storm damage.
Members of the group have been traveling back and forth over the last four months using their own funds, so the proceeds from this fundraiser will help them continue to provide resources without having to use their own money.
“We have a lot here that we take for granted. Those people have been without running water and sewage for four months and we have to reach out to them. Puerto Rico is an American principality and we’ve got to help,” said Colleen Helmick, the fundraiser’s organizer.
There will be over 40 vendors attending, a Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle. There will also be food for purchase.
