Anyone that has ever made a purchase at Bob Stark's True Value at the stoplight knows that Stark has an interesting sense of humor and his check-out counter has hosted many strange donation jars.

There was the "Stop the Rain" donation jar and then came the "Stop the Donation Jar" donation jar, but now Stark is hosting a donation boot and this time it is serious. T

he soldier's boot in a Plexiglas case has been placed in True Value to raise money for the upcoming West End Veteran's Stand Down that will take place in Forks from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. May 1 at the Elks Club, 941 Merchant Road, and is sponsored by Voices for Veterans.

The money raised by the boot will go for clothing, food and any direct services needed by veterans that come to the Stand Down. Voices for Veterans is all volunteer and 100 percent of the money raised will go to veterans' needs.
