Jim Howard has been a long time contributor to the community of Aylmer (Gatineau), Quebec, and Eardley Elementary School. Both of his children, Jeryka and Jacksyn, attended Eardley. Jim supported the school as a parent, supply teacher, and coach. However, Jim has been diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer and he will not be able to complete his plans for putting his children through post-secondary education. Both Jeryka and Jacksyn are currently in high school (as of 2019). Therefore, we are stepping in with the goal of providing a $10k base of funding for Jeryka and Jacksyn.
