Proud and thankful
June 17, 2021
To The Eagle:
They say it takes a village. A few weeks ago we put out a call to our community asking for their help in raising funds for Doug Sandell who is not only facing a very serious life threating issue but a huge financial burden, one that a very large part has not been covered by insurance.
The response received has been overwhelming, not only did we receive local support; there was support from all our neighboring communities as well as distant supporters. Fund raising activities included Go Fund Me, a three day garage sale, eight different raffles, fill the boot, bake sale, and an American Legion breakfast. We even had a car donated and sold at the garage sale.
What can we say? There are probably better ways to say thankful and proud but it is hard to describe the feelings you get when so many different people from so many different areas come together and support someone that has given so much. So from the bottom of our hearts we want to thank each and every one who helped make these events so special.
We are proud and thankful to be able to live in such a great community.
