Kristen Walko Family Fund

Our colleague and friend, new Kindergarten teacher Kristen Walko, lost her husband unexpectedly this weekend.  Josh was mowing the grass of an elderly neighbor when he was found unresponsive.   He was later admitted to the hospital, but sadly passed away on Sunday September 3rd.  

Josh was a devoted husband and father.   He had been the sole provider for his family until Kristen started her new career this past August.   The entirety of these funds will be used to support Kristen and her children (Ryan-2nd grade and Emma-Kindergarten).   We want to help them with funeral costs, living expenses, immediate needs, etc.  No amount is too small.  Your contribution is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
