One of our kindergarten students was diagnosed with Lymphoma and Leukemia four days ago. She is a precious little girl with a beautiful smile and heart. Her mother works for Durham Public Schools and her father works for the Durham Fire Department. They are also very active in the Bahama Fire Department (where I first met them many moons ago before Kailey was even born) They are a very giving family and it is our turn to give back to them in this time of need. Our school is collecting various gift cards to support the family. We are taking up a collection of gift cards or cash donations to assist with parking passes at Duke Children’s Hospital. Gift cards could include food, gas, groceries, even iTunes as I hear an iPad is in her future to assist with long stays in the hospital. Her favorite places to eat include Chick-fil-a, McDonald’s and Red Robin. If you would like to help, please send your contribution to the Mangum Elementary School office (if you are local) and we will get them to the family!
