Thursday morning Terry visited with Andy the manager of the San Angelo Sam’s Club and asked if he would walk the store with his hand inventory scanner to see what was in stock to fill the truck, after and hour Terry and Andy had enough full pallets to fill the first load totaling almost $9,000.00 paid for by the Terry Mikeska Foundation. Sam’s club also contributed pallets of 5 gallon buckets and lids used in the bakery area for mop buckets. Terry immediately posted it on his social media sites and within just a few hours already raised over $2,000 towards the purchase.
