Bloomington man raising money and collecting goods for local troops abroad for the holidays

How Brazil is reforming a public fund to finance broadband expansion

If someone wishes to donate, he said he accepts cash/checks, digital payments via Venmo or PayPal and donated goods from the wishlist. Gahm said whoever raises the highest amount of money takes home a plaque. He said if interested to contact him on Facebook.

His goal this year is $5,000 to buy items on their wish lists, to wrap, pack and send it to them overseas. He said he started this fundraiser five years ago and it has since grown with the support from the community.

“This whole fundraiser isn’t about me at all, it’s about the guys who aren’t here; it’s about how can the local community help the local troops and I’m just the guy that’s collecting and sending it to these individuals that I have coached,” Gahm said. Gahm said he personally know the soldiers deployed and used to coach them. Now, he said he enjoys keeping in touch with them and seeing them grow.
