UT electrician puts together Build-A-Trust-Bowl-A-Thon

With tension nationwide between police and civilians, George W. Hayes Jr. believes some people have forgotten how to trust.

With the intent to bridge the trust level between young people in the Toledo and surrounding areas with men and women in uniform, The University of Toledo electrician and Toledo Bowling Senate junior coordinator organized the Build-A-Trust-Bowl-A-Thon.

BUILD-A-TRUST-BOWL-A-THON # 2The event will take place 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Toledo Sports Center, 1516 Starr Ave. Police, firefighters, military, kids, students and community members are encouraged to attend.

Hayes said his hope is to make Toledo a better place, even if it’s one event at a time. He has been involved in a youth bowling league for the past 32 years and has witnessed firsthand the issues affecting today’s youth.

“People need to be able to tell someone when something bad happens; it helps us all in the long run,” Hayes said. “Trust is a must. Not all folks in uniform are bad people, and the same goes for the individuals not in uniform.”

The cost to bowl three games is $5 per person. Kids 17 and younger bowl for free courtesy of Jon Harris of McDonald’s, who is helping sponsor the event.

There will be music and door prizes during the bowl-a-thon.
