On Tuesday, March 4, 2014, Melanie Ponce De Leon, a 9 year old 3rd grade student at Golden Grove Elementary in West Palm Beach, Florida, experienced what no child or adult should ever have to! While walking home from the bus stop she was struck by a car. Her injuries were so great that she had to be flown by helicopter to the hospital, where she now remains in critical condition.
We need your help to show her that her community and the nation cares! Remember, many are mightier than one, and if you can simply make a small donation we can make a difference!
Please take a moment to look at the newspaper article regarding the accident (Click on the link below). Golden Grove Elementary's PTO has set-up this website to assist the family with expenses so that they can concentrate on and spend time at their daughter's side rather than worrying about less important things.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly at [phone redacted].
