Gold Canyon Lions donate $2K to Project Help in Apache Junction


Thanks to all our wonderful sponsors and all those who attended and participated in the Gold Canyon Lions’ Club “Great Gatsby Fundraiser” — know that your contributions are being put to work to serve your community.

One of the many worthy organizations that the Gold Canyon Lions Club supported is “Project Help,” and Lions Pam Burks and Julie Minnick were proud to present Rosie Portugal-Brastad, Project Help coordinator, with a $2,000 check.

What does Project Help do? “By helping our students achieve their best potential, we help our community reach its best potential,” they say.

Project Help operates in the best interest of students of the Apache Junction Unified School District, providing assistance to students, families, school nurses, teachers and coaches. Project Help is 100% supported by donations: finances, food, new and gently-used clothing, and household goods are provided by churches, organizations, businesses and individuals.
