Gilroy Donut House Emergency Fund

 

Gilroy Friends,

I’m sure most of you get donuts from Gilroy Donut House, located at the corner of 1st Street and Wayland Lane.  As you know, they are the nicest family.  I went in last week and was surprised to see the dad, Sreng Hok, working. The dad has been pretty ill for the last couple years. He has been going through dialysis. Long story short, their daughter, Kim Hok ,who works there as well had a brain aneurysm  and they are going to be taking her off life support.  She’s only 29 years old. The dad shared this with  me today.  He went on to tell me through his tears how much their family has endured in the last year. His wife had a stroke and is partially paralyzed and goes in to bake all the donuts at night.  Due to these  unfortunate circumstances, they are not in a position to close the store to grieve. 

So dear friends, lets show the Hok Family how great our community is.  These funds will go to help with their rent, medical bills, or whatever else they need to be able to grieve and not worry so much during this difficult time. . 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
