The Garrett Pope Jr. Memorial Fund
Instead of sending flowers, we ask that a charible contribution be made to a cause that will immediatly impact our community and children.
Garrett LOVED to read! In his honor, we are collecting funds that will be dontated to the Indian Land Elementary and Middle schools to help continue to develop thier reading programs, and stock every classroom with the best in educational reading materials. We have met with Principle Thorpe, and he agrees that this is a need that the schools and your children will absolutley benefit from.
We thank everyone for thier prayers, kind words, and support.
This money will go to stocking each classroom's library with updated reading materials, In addition, we are working with the schools to create a section of the the library with books from series that Garrett loved. There will be a plaque with "Garrett's Favorites" posted. His friends, brother, and sister will be able to go there and select a book from his reading list.
Stacy and I cannot thank you everyone enough for helping us make this a reality.
My cousin was 14 years old when he passed away from this in 1998. It is so tragic kids are still doing this.
