Help Crocker Support Community United this Holiday

Dear Crocker Community,

We are very pleased to let you know that we are again partnering with Community United to support two families in need this holiday season.  This is the fifth year that the Crocker Community has come together to help others to have a happy holiday.

Here is some background on the families:

The Funes family has two children: Jacqueline is 9 and Jonathan is 7.  Jacqueline was shot by a stray bullet this past May, and she was paralyzed from her neck down.  As  result, her mom has quit her job to care for her full-time.  Jacqueline was released from the hospital about three weeks ago, and with rehabilitation, now has limited movement in her right hand.  Jacqueline enjoys reading, coloring, and watching movies.  Her brother Jonathan enjoys Hot Wheels, cars, and other toys.

The Gibson family has three children: Indya is 9, Cordell is 5, and Jeremiah is 2.  Ms. Gibson is the single parent of Indya, and she is also raising her two grandchildren, Cordell and Jeremiah.  Ms. Gibson had to quit her job for health reasons, and is now living off of social security.  Indya is a creative child who enjoys art, and making jewelry like bracelets and necklaces.  Cordell enjoys playing with cars and action figures.  Jeremiah enjoys toys and books.

We’ll have a large box set aside in the office clearly labelled “ Community United Families”.  You can place any gift donations in this box.  If you’d like to donate money or gift cards, please place these in an envelope clearly marked “Community United Families” and place these in the green PTA Box outside the front office.

Thank you all very much for your outpouring of support for these families in need!  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Lesley Podesta and Danielle Vidal
PTA Co-Presidents
