Several businesses in the Loomis area are helping send the Del Oro High band, cheerleaders and boosters to Saturday’s CIF State Bowl Championship game in Carson.
Today, G’Day Donuts in Loomis is donating a portion of its proceeds for each person that makes a purchase and says, “State tastes great,” at the register. Loomis Self Storage is donating $100 for each unit rented to Del Oro Athletics to help with the trip.
The Yogurt Shop, Wild Chicken, Subway and Taylor’s contributed to the cause earlier this week.
