WATE 6 On Your Side is hosting a DAY OF GIVING
October 4, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 6:30 pm EDT
Nearly every day of the year, you can find a group of volunteers standing guard and performing military rites at a Veteran’s funeral. This group is known as the Honor Guard. They serve in all weather conditions, any time of the day and without compensation. The American Legion Posts that support these Honor Guards have a number of costs associated with their service including the cost of flags, uniforms, transportation, guns and ammunition. Operation Honor Guard, NFP provides charitable assistance to organizations working to provide military funerals for veterans and service members.
WATE 6 On Your Side is hosting a DAY OF GIVING on Thursday, 10/4/18 from 6am to 6:30pm to collect donations for Operation Honor Guard, NFP and the local East Tennessee Units they support.
This will be held at :
- Mann Heritage Chapel @ 6200 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919
WATE’s volunteers will be accepting the donations that people make from their cars at each location.
WATE needs help during the late afternoon hours (3 pm to 6:30 pm). They are asking for people to sign up for 1-hour time slots and we need 5 people per slot. Note: all Scouts must have adult supervision.
Since youth members are not permitted to serve as solicitors of money for their chartered organizations, our council, or in support of other organizations, if you volunteer for this event, you cannot wear your Scout uniform.
To sign up for a location and for a time slot, please contact Jennifer Williams by email and/or phone at: Jennifer.Williams@scouting.org 865-588-6514
The deadline date to register is Thursday, September 27 by 4:30pm.
