Jon Loden, left, owner of Loden’s Auto Body Center in Kingston, makes a $1,000 donation to help kick off the annual Shrine Paper Sale fund drive for Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Roy Ford accepts the donation.

The paper sale will be May 13-18, with a road block planned for May 19

“Noble Loden has given generously every year,” Ford said. “When you see the men with the red fezzes, please help. In the past, the people of Roane County have been very generous.”

Any area resident who has or knows of anyone with a child younger than 18 with burn, orthopedic or skeletal problems is urged to contact a Shriner or call Shrine Hospital toll free at 1-800-237-5055.

Treatment is not based on ability to pay.

Meals and transportation are furnished free.
