PVCICS students are pledging to "Read for Recovery", to help their friend Sloane (3A) and her family! Please consider a donation.
Jess Spanknebel, mom to Sloane, suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm over April vacation. She has already undergone several brain surgeries and is the ICU at
Hartford Hospital, where she will remain for at least the next 2 weeks.
HOW READING FOR RECOVERY works:
From now until Sunday May 5, (the approximate time Sloane's mom is expected to remain in ICU), students in K-9th will pledge to read in her honor, promising to read anywhere from 100-1000 minutes and more -- outside their existing classwork and assigned reading. Many are reading on their commute to school, or on the sidelines of their sports commitments, all in honor of their friend and her family. All funds raised will go to the Spanknebel Recovery fund, designed to help with the many costs related to Jess' hospitalization and recovery.
Please consider a pledge on behalf of a PVCICS reader.
Flat donations of all amounts are appreciated, and can be calculated by per/minute amounts (.01, .05, .10 etc) Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would prefer to mail a check to be be deposited into the Spanknebel Recovery Fund at Easthampton Savings Bank.
Sloane is a wonderful friend to many,
and her dad, "Firefighter Mike", tirelessly gives to PVCICS and the greater Hadley community in his capacity as Hadley Fire Department Chief. Now, it is our chance to help him, Sloane, her brother Gage, and especially Jess Spanknebel as their family embarks on mom's long road to recovery.
