State Assemblymember, high schooler team up to help veterans

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Peninsula High senior John Zuercher is getting ready to deliver what could be his biggest donation collection yet for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Long Beach with the help of State Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi’s office.

The football player started collecting donations for veterans when he started a Veterans Appreciation Club at his school last year.

“The Assemblymember read in the newspaper about the drives that John does with the Veterans Club he started at his school and wanted to work with John,” said Kerry Jacob, communications director for Muratsuchi’s office.
