It takes a Village: Let's support Gavin

Eric Slominski tragically passed away, leaving behind his young son Gavin, grief stricken family, loved ones, and friends. As the family navigates this difficult time, processing the loss of someone far too soon, we can surround them with our love and support. In the coming days, weeks, and years following this heavy loss, that support will mean the world to them. The outpouring of emotional and community support has been immensely appreciated by Kelly. We would like to bless this family in a time of great hardship and loss by pouring out love but also providing additional support. An ancient proverb states, "Children thrive best in a community that cares. A family is essential, but it takes a village to raise a child. A network of people, from relatives to neighbors, teachers to mentors, all contribute to a child's growth, providing guidance, love, support, and a sense of belonging. Together we shape the next generation.” If you can physically support Kelly and Gavin, please continue to lay love and prayers out for them. If you can financially support them, it would be an eternal blessing to lift that weight off the family. If you can support them with prayer and sharing this, you are greatly appreciated! All funds will go directly to supporting Gavin. Together, we are the village! #TruckeeStrong
