Make A Difference Day is Oct. 22, a national day of doing good where over 3 million volunteers will rally to make a difference volunteering their time and resources to local and national projects. But for us in Ramona, this happens every day. One of the great things about living in Ramona is that people really care about the community and are very generous when it comes to volunteering.
In the past weeks alone, the Ramona community has had several events that benefit both local and national causes. Team Ramona Beauties 4th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser at the Ramona Beauty Supply and Salon on Main Street raised over $6,000. Crossfit Brand X on Maple Street in the industrial park held a workout fundraiser benefiting The Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Infant Swim Rescue and Camp Patriot with over $5,000 raised. Prudential California Realty in Ramona has kicked off its Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program that recognizes middle and high school youth who have conducted noteworthy volunteer projects over the past year. And of course all of those who have been involved with the many fundraisers for Liam Houck, the Ramona toddler who needs a kidney transplant. These are but a few of the recent events that have made a difference to our community. And let’s not forget the ongoing projects of our local service clubs and churches. As a leader in the community, the Sentinel does its best to publish these events in both the newspaper and online, so when you have a fundraiser or community project please email your information to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to include it.
It’s nice to recognize a day of volunteering, but this happens every day in Ramona, and we should all be very proud of our efforts.
