Fred and Tonya Owens Family Fund

Greetings Family, Friends and other Caring Individuals,

On Monday, February 26th, Fred Owens and his children were in a horrific car accident while on the way to school in the Minneapolis area.

Fred, Justin (14) and Jada (11) sustained numerous injuries and were hospitalized,  but are expected to recover. Unfortunately Fred and Tonya's 6 year old baby girl Jordyn, succumbed to her injuries and passed away on Thursday, March 1st.

The family has a long road to recovery! They will need your prayers and financial assistance as they prepare for the burial, medical expenses and the plethora of other costs that accompany such tragedy.

Please assist us to support Fred and Tonya in this most difficult time of need.

There are several ways to contribute, including the following:
1) this GoFundMe account (coordinated by the family)

2) another GoFundMe account, authored by Jessica Christensen (a teacher & family friend in Minneapolis)

3) and Fred's faith-based organization
Donations to the faithbased organization should specify "Owens Family Fund"
