I wonder if Northeast Kansas has the highest percentage of any part of the U.S. of communities helping families? We usually give our viewers like you a "heads up" of some event where people in the family's hometown are banding together to help them. The latest examples include..
Today's Krispy Kreme fundraiser for the Steve Zimmerman family. Kids at Northern Hills Junior High are selling dozens of doughnuts, with the proceeds assisting Steve and his family (Steve's battling pancreatic cancer.. and his son is a Northern Hills student.) Sure hope you can stop by.. and buy some. They're only $6, and the fight against pancreatic cancer is expensive. The Krispy Kremes will be waiting in their boxes at 5620 NW Topeka Boulevard.
This Sunday, folks in Silver Lake are at it again. After a community-wide effort to help little Ellie Wonnell's family with their medical expenses.. Silver Lakers are welcome at Mac's Bar (on a Sunday!) for the benefit helping 8-year old Michael Bowers. The son of Heather Lutz and Jerry Bowers was diagnosed with leukemia last year. Michael's continuing his treatments in Kansas City. This is another "straight from the heart" benefit sponsored by Russell and Brenda McAbee.. and we hope you can attend. It starts at noon in Silver Lake. Thanks for any help you can offer these families. Please share other stories of Kansas generosity with us. RH
