The night before his fifth grade graduation, eleven-year-old Jayden Grant was getting his haircut for the ceremony when he was shot by a gunman who opened fire on his Brooklyn block. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and remains seriously injured. As he faces a long and challenging recovery ahead, we want to come together as a school community to support him and his family with whatever they need.
We've worked directly with Jayden's family to set up a special needs trust for Jayden’s benefit through The Theresa Community Foundation Pooled Trust (http://www.theresafoundation.org/pooled-trust/trusts/community-trust/
). With the input of Jayden’s family, the trust’s staff will collect, manage, and distribute the donated funds for Jayden’s benefit.
The Theresa Community Foundation Pooled Trust is managed by The Center for Special Needs Trust Administration, Inc., of which Tracey Gregory is an employee.
