watermelons

The above is from a post at a local facebook page from Jesse Sweigart (The Computer Guy on Fourth Street):

“Hello. I do not normally post on here, but I am in great need of help. My child goes to Park Elem in Columbia here, and through out the year I make sure that I supply school with fruit for the kids at no charge. As normal this Tuesday is field day for the kids, and being kind I bought the school 56 watermelons. I never ask for credit and I never ask for help, but these hands of mine have also had three surgeries with in the last year, and there is no way that I can pull this off for these kids alone. So here is what I need….

Parents of other children 🙂
Hands 🙂
Carving Knives 🙂
Containers 🙂
and maybe some help delivering these to make this years field day nice for our children. My load of water melons are being delivered tomorrow. I will be transporting as much of the 56 that I can to Columbia Discount Computers by the post office. If anyone can help me please please please… It benefits our children! I’m attaching a screen shot of the email from Mr. Black so you also understand what my dilemma is. Thank you again. [Give a call if you can help the kids have a fresh fruit treat day – 717.681.6598]
