Donation Jar UPDATE~ Well folks. You came through again, I wouldn’t expect anything less. We set the jars out for LoCaL girl Abby Dunn and you dropped over $1010 in! Your generosity is so appreciated by this vivacious girl and her family. It’s always good to know you have a lot of good people on your side.
Abby was diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Myelitis and after what she described as a ‘really long’ ambulance ride to UC Davis, she found she would have to stay. For 35 days Abby stayed. Shriners Hospital did some rehab with her and she said they MADE her learn how to make her bed before she left. No kid likes that. Those Shriners are good people too.
Facebook blew up with everyone sharing the Go Fund Me page set up for Abby. Then so many LoCaLs showed up to help. VFW held a luncheon to raise funds. Tami Mallery organized a Spaghetti Feed, Abby's 4H Troop showed up to clean and serve, LoCaLs donated food and silent auction items. AND I saw these super cute tees on Facebook made by Customer Talk, MORE good people. Abby is still active in Milford 4H so a family friend donated a custom wheelchair that will enable her to care for and show her pig at Lassen County Fair. That’s what our community does. They make us Hometown Proud!
We received the MOST lovely hand written thank you cards from Abby. What a wonderful girl. Jessica Eid said of Abby “no matter what she will smile through it”.
