MODESTO — Get out your dollar and get ready for Kids' Day on Tuesday. Volunteers will take to the streets in Modesto to sell special editions of The Bee for the 17th year in a row.
In that time, nearly $830,000 has been raised for The Salvation Army's Red Shield Center, a critical facility for at-risk boys and girls. When you see a hawker, pull over and part with a buck or two.
If you want to help out, contact the center at www.redshieldmodesto.org or (209) 538-7111.
And this year, for the first time, you can text a donation. Simply text "SHIELD" to 80888 and reply "YES" to confirm your $10 gift.
