“I think they (volunteers) got just as much out of it,” Hess said. “It’s a great lesson to teach our kids to give back to their community.”
There will also be a community health fair again this year where people who attend will receive a free cholesterol panel and blood and glucose measuring, Rouser said.
About 35 vendors will accompany an American Red Cross blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The first 50 people who visit will receive a gift. The health fair will take place at Revolution Community Church and coincide with the campaign kickoff.
“The best thing any of us can do to help ourselves is to help someone else,” Rouser said. “There is no greater feeling than lifting someone else higher than they imagined they could be.”
