PALESTINE —

Proceeds from the event benefit the youth department.

“Many of the youth are involved in UM Army projects throughout the summer doing construction jobs like making wheelchair ramps and replacing roofs on people's homes in disrepair. They actually have to pay to be a part of it,” Chamberlin said. “For the younger children, it will go toward summer camp scholarships. Many of them would not be able to go without help, so this fund-raiser opens up a lot of opportunities for these youth to have experiences at summer camp and serving other people at UM Army.”
