True to their word, a Palmerton-based organization has distributed its spring carnival proceeds.
Then again, charitable contributions are all in a days work for Crusaders For a Cause Inc., of Palmerton, a nonprofit organization.
Among the list of benefactors this time is Palmerton Relay For Life and surrounding areas, the American Cancer Society, and the Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Company.
The American Cancer Society received $600 in April from the group, while the Palmerton Relay For Life received $1,000.
In addition, the Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Company was presented with two Stearns U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation jackets, along with two stainless steel carabineers all valued at about $600. The donation will help Franklin possibly become the first accredited water rescue team from the Department of Health in eastern Pennsylvania.
Also, Sam and Sandy Guido, founders of Sam Guido evangelical Ministries, received a donation of $250 from Crusaders toward the Lutheran Orthodox Church for purchasing 150 to 200 bold print service books to be used for the elderly at Whitehall Manor, Manor Care, and Pleasant Trees personal care homes. Sam Guido Ministries is an affiliate of Crusaders For a Cause. For more information about their ministry, visit www.samguidoministries.com.
