BATTLE GROUND — Prairie High School Air Force JROTC cadets recently sponsored a charity drive to highlight and support Northwest Battle Buddies (NWBB), a nonprofit organization that trains and paris service dogs with combat veterans who are living with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The campaign lasted from Nov. 1-11, culminating in a pancake breakfast on Veterans Day sponsored by Mill Creek Pub in Battle Ground. All veterans were invited to eat for free at the event, while the public was asked for a minimum donation of $5. All of the donations and proceeds collected from the breakfast were donated to NWBB.
On Mon., Dec. 5, a check for $1,380 was presented to NWBB from Mill Creek Pub Owner Russell Brent and the cadets from Prairie High School.
