We have a family within our community that needs our help and support.  A younger sibling of one of our DHS student’s is having to battle cancer for the second time in her short life.  She is a 6th grader at Wells Middle School.

There has already been a financial strain upon the family with various doctors appointments, chemotherapy, etc.  We are asking if you are able to help at all with a donation, please send it to:
