Lodi residents are showing their support for veterans in need. Organizers for the Warriors for Wounded Warriors walk report an outpouring of community support for today’s event benefiting the Wounded Warriors organization.
One major donation was dropped off in the Vineyard Christian Middle School office in an envelope. Event organizer Lyanne Paustenbach confirmed the donation was for $10,000, but said the benefactor wishes to remain anonymous.
More than 100 people are registered to walk today at Lodi Lake. Garrett Hilscher, the sailor whose family was helped by Wounded Warriors after his illness, will be present to accept a check on behalf of the organization.
The walk is 1.85 miles, and it costs $25 to participate. Registration and photos are open at 8 a.m. The opening presentation and the walk begin at 9 a.m.
Paustenbach said donations will still be accepted through next week at the school. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
