Help for Cindy and Kids

Cindy McGruder has experienced an unexpected tragedy - the sudden passing of Donnie, her fiancé and father to her three children, Brandon (16), Zachary (14), and Chelsea (8).We all know Cindy from many different places - be it family, friends, colleagues, or parents of the children who she lovingly cares for every day. Cindy has impacted so many of our lives in such special and enduring ways, and our hope is that we can give back to her in some small way during her time of need.This page was started by two parents whose children have been loved by Cindy, and continually supported far after they completed their time in her classroom. Handling the curveballs of life is never easy, and we just hope to be able to make this one even the slightest bit more manageable so that Cindy can focus on healing herself, her children, and her family.Thank you for anything you can contribute - even $5 would be amazing!
