Zesty fire fighters' sauce funding scholarships

And sales are about to go national through an unnamed retail grocery chain.

Same address for the Firefighters Work Climate Survey. We have some very caring firefighters. And some not so caring. Lee came close to losing the space he grows on many times. Like station #3, The City rents out space for Micro Wave towers or other needs pop up and. The garden spots seem to be the target.

Several, more than several members have done some very good things, small and big for many.
Some have a bad habit of some using this as cover for their own personal gain. Try to grab some attention so they can BS a group of people for there own personal gain and EGO..

Lee,john P, will c, herb b , tobi m, rich a. ken c , randi r.. and many others are the neighbors you hope to have..
Some of the others are why you lock your doors at night. And have AUDITORS..

We (his family) are very proud of Lee's accomplishments. It is only natural that he wanted to be a fire fighter, he grew up with 2 uncles on the Sacramento Fire Department. And it is only natural that he wants to give something back to his community.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
