The Sgt. W. K. Singleton Pipes and Drums will be collecting donations outside of Kroger, 11635 Hwy. 70 in Arlington on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm for Forever Young.

Forever Young Senior Wish is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to seniors. Currently, the charity is focusing on World War II veterans, and sending them on trips to battlefields and sites where they served, or the WWII memorial in Washington, DC. Diane Hight, Founder and President of Forever Young, explains that time is running out for many of these veterans, as old age and physical ailments prevent them from being able to travel.

In August 2013, the next Forever Young trip will take a group of 17 veterans of the Pacific Theater, including a Pearl Harbor survivor, to the Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawai’i.

All donations made to Forever Young Senior Wish are tax deductible. For more information, visit www.foreveryoungseniorwish.org
