Patriots at the Farmers Market on 9/11

Original post made by Candyce Roberts on Sep 11, 2010

Today at the Farmers' Market, not only did we get to hear a Young Patriots Fife & Drum Corps, but Pleasanton residents and PCFMA donated $1101.22 to Freedom Alliance and Wounded Warrior Project! I wish I could express to you the enthusiasm and sincerity with which each donation and decision to become a part of road warriors 2010 was made. If you know an active military person, veteran or family of a veteran, please let them know that the heart of America is for them, and always will be. Tell them about the mother who handed me her $10.00 donation as quarters filling up a baggie. She and her daughter had gathered them together that morning. They did it as family....counting quarters to give away to support our military children. Tell them the words one of our new road warriors wrote on the T shirt we will give to Corporal Allen Silveria...
Thanks for your big sacrifice so we still can live our dreams. De todo corazon, Gisella
