Help for our beloved Melva

Most staff have heard by now that our beloved co-worker, Melva, suffered a stroke in June. She has a long road to recovery and we would like to help her and her family by easing the burden of her health care costs.

Melva's husband, Russell, is very appreciative of continued thoughts, prayers, and visits. He has been in awe of the amount of lives Melva impacted at work. We would like to continue to show our gratitude and love for Melva and her family with this Go Fund Me. 

Thank you all for reading, sharing and donating. Melva would be very humbled by this.

we will be meeting with Melva and Russell this weekend to present them with our fundraising efforts to help them pay medical expenses. Thank you again everyone!
