JSerra Catholic High School will host a rummage sale and car wash to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) on Saturday, September 17 from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. The SOWF provides support and assistance to the families of fallen and wounded Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps special operations forces.

The group needs donations of gently used furniture, clothing, toys, tools, etc. Donations will be accepted at the school beginning Saturday, August 27. Donation dates and times are posted on www.facebook.com/sowfjserra. Additional drop off dates and times can be arranged by contacting sowfjserra@gmail.com.

According to Mrs. Mary Victoria Taylor, Counselor at JSerra and the fundraiser’s Chairperson, “The students and parents of JSerra Catholic High School will be volunteering hundreds of hours to support this wonderful cause. We invite everyone in the community to join us on Saturday, September 17. Not only can you purchase some great items at terrific prices, but you can also get your car washed. We’ll also have coffee and baked goods for sale to help keep your energy up while you shop.”

One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to the SOWF. The group hopes to raise more than $5,000 to benefit the more than 800 children of fallen special operations personnel, like Diana Martin, daughter of Army Master Sgt. Tim “Griz” Martin, who lost his life in the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, “With the heartfelt and gracious donations to SOWF in support of our fallen heroes and their families, I have fulfilled my father’s dream for me and was able to go beyond it. SOWF gave me the ability to become someone of whom my father would be proud.” The SOWF recently announced it will offer full college scholarships to the children of all the U.S. military personnel who perished in the recent CH-47 helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
