the East Valley Boys and Girls Club. Each summer prior to the new school year, four Target stores are ready for a bunch of excited kids anxious to have new clothes for school. The kids arrive at the store at 7:00 a.m. prior to the stores’ openings giving them time to shop carefully. Each child is aided by a mentor from the community to be sure that the clothes and shoes fi t! (Kids think everything fi ts if it is something they can’t live without)! We all know that – we did that too! The Target stores involved this year are the Gilbert store

at Val Vista and Warner, the Chandler store on Arizona Avenue, the Mesa store on Power Road and the Mesa store on Longmore. The youngsters arrive very excited and the excitement is contagious among the mentors and the great employees waiting to help! Paradise Bakery is again seeing that the shoppers and

mentors have their delicious cookies to carry them after the shopping is done. Several managers from Paradise Bakery are coming to volunteer! Volunteers will start with the kids at 7:00 a.m. and

should be home by about 9:00 a.m. I promise those two hours will make your day! If

you are interested in volunteering please call

Brian Curry The unique relationship between the Sun Lakes Fire Department

(SLFD) and the American Service Animals Society (ASAS) continues to grow by leaps and bounds and the main benefi ciary is our disabled Arizona service veterans. The ASAS is spearhead by Sun Lakes residents Gerad and Debbie

Claseman who approached SLFD Battalion Chief Cheryl Van Horn about a program that allows the service animals to become acquainted and familiar with fi refi ghters and emergency medical personnel in a non emergency, non-stressful setting. “I’m a dog person already, so it was a natural fi t and I certainly

believe in the program” said Van Horn who recently oversaw the latest ASAS visit at SLFD’s Station One. Chief Van Horn went on to say that this was ASAS’s third visit

to the station and that each one has grown in both dogs involved, fi refi ghters interacting and most importantly vets getting the benefi ts of
