For Our Kids Sake organizers seek donations for annual trip

June 25, 2003|by MARLO BARNHART

Donations for the annual For Our Kids Sake bus trip to a major theme park are coming in slowly this year and Clara Broadus and her sister, Dot Bell, are getting a little worried.

The deadline to have the money for a trip to Dorney Park in Allentown, Pa., is July 14, Broadus said.

"We need at least $10,000 and we only have about $2,000 so far," she said.

Plans still are on for busing nearly 200 Hagerstown-area youngsters to the park.

"We're planning to fill four buses to Dorney on Aug. 2," Broadus said.

Broadus and Bell organized For Our Kids Sake a few years ago and began planning bus trips each summer.

This year's trip is open to youngsters ages 10 and older. Broadus said those younger than 10 may go but must be accompanied by an adult.

For information on how to donate, call Broadus at 301-739-2557.


Donations may be deposited at any branch of Hagerstown Trust Co. The For Our Kids Sake account number is 141518.
