Dear fellow parents,
As you may know, our Kindergarten student, Gil Gilmore, suffered an accident at Friends’ in early September, when he fell off the swings. Gil suffered significant injuries, which required facial surgery, and a concussion.
On doctor’s orders, Gil has not been in school, apart from one day, since September 9th. Gil’s mom, Susan, is a single mom and has been caring for Gil every day since the accident. While the school is making an insurance claim which we hope will cover Gil’s medical expenses, Susan has not been able to be at work during this time and is facing significant bills.
Several members of our Friends’ School community have reached out to Susan to help with groceries and errands. However, Susan is in need of our help to cover lost wages from her job at Whole Foods in addition to other related costs.
We hope you will please consider joining us and making a donation to help support Susan and Gil during this challenging time. Through the YouCaring website, 100% of dollars raised will go directly to Susan (minus the small PayPal transaction fee).
Thank you so much for your support of one of our community members.
Jenny McGuire and Mindy Mullins (on behalf of
Friends' School Parent Council)
