Sunrise Inn benefit to fund foundation

The Seeing Eye

CAR SHOW TO BENEFIT VETERANS: The Sunrise Inn, 510 E. Market St., Warren, will hold a car show 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday to benefit the Travis Mills Foundation. The $10 registration begins at 10 a.m. for cars, bikes and trucks.

Proceeds benefit the Travis Mills Foundation, which supports “recalibrated warriors” — veterans who are amputees because of injuries — and their families through long-term programs.

Retired Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne is a motivational speaker, actor, author and an advocate for veterans and amputees. He lost portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan.

NILES STAFF RECEIVE TRAINING: Niles City Schools classified staff and administrators will take part in “Stop the Bleed” 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. today at Niles McKinley High School. Staff will learn how to use a tourniquet and how to properly use gauze and pressure.

Stop the Bleed is a government initiative that was established after the Florida school shooting in an effort to educate nonmedical personnel on how to administer first aid to someone that has life-threatening bleeding injuries.

The training program, which is being provided to Niles schools at no cost, will include a Stop the Bleed aid kit for each Niles school building.

CAMPAIGN BEGINS: Local GameStop, Love’s Travel Stops and Walmart/Sam’s Club stores will hold Children’s Miracle Network campaigns throughout August and September to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Money raised locally will benefit Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley in Boardman.

This is the first year GameStop has participated in the Children’s Miracle Network campaign.

Participating stores will ask customers for donations at checkout.
