VA gets thumbs up from audit panel

December 13, 2014

Can you spare a quarter?

December 13, 2014

Bernie Buffone is on a mission to raise funds for St. Jude's Hospital one quarter at a time.
“Everybody has a quarter in their pocket,” Buffone said with his no nonsense, Pennsylvanian accent. “I want everybody to send in a quarter to St. Jude's Hospital under Kitten Run 2, so we get the credit for it. This is not about stars asking the public for $19 a month. I need it form the American working people. Everyone has a quarter in their pocket.”

For the past 15 years, Albert and her Salvation Army Christmas kettle have been holiday fixtures at the Big Spring post office. She has made a few concessions to age over the years, but her presence has been a December constant.
