With the money raised at Plum Canyon Elementary our veteran Joshua Murphy was able to get a new shower. Joshua hurt his back and head in Iraq after being struck by mortar and gets dizzy and cannot bend over in the shower, the shower was also very old and moldy, which was very hard for Joshua to fix due to his low income and back problems. Now he has a brand new shower with a seat and hand rails so that he will not fall down or over and can be more independent and safe in his home. It is a wonderful holiday gift.
