I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
As you most likely already know, last night there was a house fire on Somers Avenue that destroyed the property. Two of our families lost everything. Thankfully there were no fatalities. Four of the students attend Kosciusko and one attends Cudahy High School.
Many staff and families have asked how they can help. We have been in contact with the families and they have given us sizes of clothes needed, but there will be many other items they need. We have a start on Christmas gifts through donations that were made to the community wide toy drive coordinated by Alderman Morales
If you are interested in helping, we will be collecting food, clothes or money at Kosciusko and the Administration Building. We will collect items and donations through Friday morning. During the day on Friday we will purchase a Visa gift cards from the monetary donations raised so that the family may purchase items they need.
Below are the clothing and shoe sizes:
4 year old girl 5T, shoe size unknown (maybe size 10 or 11)
5 year old boy 7/8 or M boys (likes sweat pants), he has one pair of shoe right now maybe size 11 or 12?
6th grade boy: 11/12 boys, shoe size - Mens 5-6
(dad): XL shirts, 34-36 pants
(mom): M shirts, size 9 pants, size 7 shoe
6th & 9th grade girls: same sizes as mom
Thank you for your help in supporting our students and families! If you have questions you can contact Ehren Miller or Kim Berner. Please be as generous as you can. This is an awful thing to happen to anyone especially at this time of year.
