My name is Anthony Martin and I'm from Springville, CA and have lived in the Porterville area almost all of my life. As many of you may know there are nearly 300 homes in East Porterville that currently do not have water due to their wells running dry. While the city and county are working together to help provide water I wanted to do something to help as well! Because of this I have partnered with Earlimart Rotary Club to start this Go Fund Me page. We will be working in conjunction to raise as much money possible to purchase drinkable water for the residents of East Porterville who no longer have access to safe drinking water. I encourage you to donate any amount you may be able to as every little bit helps. We've set a goal of $10,000 but will keep collecting as long as the money comes in. All money donated will be transfered to Earlimart Rotary Club who will then use that money to buy the water. Thank you so much for helping us help these families. Should you have any questions regarding this fundraiser please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com and visit my blog at http://dadof5boys.blogspot.com/
to keep updated on the amount raised as well as future opportunities to help volunteer to pass out water. With your help we can support these families in their time of need!
