MKC Bender Family Assistance

As you may already know, MKC Edward Bender, a member of the PSU-305 Engineering Division, suffered a tragic loss on June 13th 2016 when his wife and daughter were involved in a head on collision. His daughter did not survive. His wife remains in critical condition. We are asking for thoughts, prayers and donations of any amount to help pay for funeral costs, as well as continuing medical care costs.

UPDATE 6/16: We are saddened to report that Ed's wife, Tracy, passed away this afternoon as a result of the injuries she sustained in the car accident.  Now more than ever, the Bender family could use your support. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
