CANDY IS HOLDING THE ANNUAL EGF DONATION DRIVE. I JUST COPIED THIS OFF HER SITE SO I DIDN'T HAVE TO RE-TYPE IT. IF ANYONE CAN HELP OUT THIS YEAR IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
4th Annual Remembering Emma Grace Donation Drive
Obviously, life took a big turn several weeks ago with Hannah's diagnosis of Friedreich's Ataxia. Thus, I'm late kicking off the annual donation drive. I've received several inquiries about whether I would continue EGF. The answer is YES.....as long as I can. I briefly considered whether I could handle everything (and it may change as Hannah's disease progresses) but then I received 3 phone calls/emails for assistance in a couple days. So, I took it as a sign to keep on keeping on as long as possible.4th Annual Remembering Emma Grace Donation Drive Date: June 1 - August 15Goal: 1187 items & $535 in cash donations Items needed:Handmade -Bereavement gowns in all sizes.
