Toni Munoz joined Mary Jo Quintero and Theresa Milavich, community recreation supervisor, City of Fresno, for a check presentation. Morris Garcia, author of Henry the Tractor, pledged $1 from the sale of each book to Children's Hospital. His recent $1,000 contribution, designated to the Barrett Smades Forrest Drowning Prevention Fund at Children’s Hospital, enabled the Water Safety Council and Children's to donate $2,000 toward scholarships for swimming lessons for lower income, minority children living in southwest and southeast areas of Fresno.
