MENIFEE – The Nafe Menifee network recently made a trip to Dr. Phil on April 1 to film a show taping.
Menifee Nafe heard that the new Boys and Girls Club needed to raise more money open a club in Menifee and jumped on the opportunity to make a difference.
Robbie Motter, Nafe’s western regional coordinator, immediately contacted Dr. Phil’s staff and they sent a chartered bus paid for by Dr. Phil.
The staff will also be sending the Boys & Girls Club of Menifee, on behalf of Nafe, a check for $400.
Every individual on the bus also made a donation which totaled to $425, cumulating to a grand total of $825 for the Boys and Girls Club of Menifee.
“It’s not a large amount but every bit that comes in helps, and this was Nafe’s way to do what we could to reach out and touch a life,” said Motter.
On the trip was also Boys and Girls Club Board Member Bill Zimmerman, who provided the group with information on the Boys and Girls Club.
The sandwiches given to everyone on the bus were donated by Abe from Boston Billie’s in Sun City; Dr. Desiree Reedus from Temecula made fantastic cookies for everyone; Sheila Caruso, Avon distributor, donated 96 bottles of water and she also donated three door prizes; Sue Lopez, Realtor with LCL Realty in Menifee, donated a door prize; green cloth bags were donated by the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce; and Leslie Gugliemetti of Menifee made muffins.
