Assistance for a Family with Medical Needs for a Child

We have been notified by a school counselor of a Sylvania student that is currently receiving medical attention at an out of town hospital due to a recent event.  The parents are doing a lot of traveling back and forth as well as taking turns staying in a hotel to be close to the student in addition to caring for their additional siblings at home.  

We are asking for monetary donations to be able to purchase gas cards and to help with additional expenses they are incurring through this lengthy hospital stay.

If you would like to make a donation of any amount to help, please fill out the form and you will receive follow-up instructions.  THANK YOU!
