Del Norte Warrior Football Boosters are once again sponsoring a car wash with proceeds going to support Team Redwood’s annual medical mission trip to care for some of Haiti’s most vulnerable orphans.

The Warrior football team and cheerleaders will be washing cars  Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Chetco Federal Credit Union, Hwy. 101 and 7th Street in Crescent City.

 

Team Redwood will be doing medical care, dental care and installing clean drinking water systems at six orphanages this year. Members hope to provide shoes for at least one orphanage to decrease the chance of injuries, infections and worm infestations.  They will also be traveling north to a small fishing village to provide their only access to care.  

Airline baggage restrictions and fees are making it difficult for the mission team to take supplies other than essential medicines so the team is asking for cash donations so they can make purchases upon its arrival in Haiti.

The team will be traveling in mid-November.  Folks can follow the trip by “liking” Team Redwood on Facebook.

To make donations visit the Team Redwood website to use PayPal: www.teamredwood.org, or make donations directly at the account payable to “Team Redwood” at North Valley Bank, 1492 Northcrest Dr., Crescent City, CA.
