Helton's Cali Vaca to JJ's Graduation

I am sure most of you know Jacob, Sandy Helton and their 4 boys. Jacob has been working extra hard doing odd jobs in his off time to earn extra money to make the long trip out to San Deigo, CA in the second week in September to watch their oldest son JJ graduate from the Marine basics. This is such a huge accomplishment and I know they are very proud of him. I know it is important for them to be there for them but this trip is also important because this family in the almost 20 years of marriage (September 29) has never, ever went on a family vacation, not even an over night trip together. Things are tight and they are not sure how it is going to work out. I have gotten to know them and watched as they have supported, cared and loved for every person in this community they come in contact with as they are their own family and they have always put it in God's hand to get them through. I know how important our vacations are to us to have that time together as a family and we all got together and decided we wanted to try and do some things to raise money for them to take the stress off and allow them to have a little extra fun while they are there. We want this to be a memory that will last for them and the kids. So please even $5 will add up, I know they will be so grateful!
