Help the Melnyk Family

Our friend and co-worker, George Melnyk, needs our help. On January 18th, George was injured in an accident in his home severing his spinal cord, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe on his own. We remain optimistic for even a partial recovery, but the family needs us now to help with things like utilities, groceries, medical bills, mortgage payments,  insurance, and daily living expenses. Chef George has worked in food service most of his life and is beloved everywhere he went. He has an incredibly positive attitude, a great sense of humor, and is always the first one to offer help.  He is the sole breadwinner in his family, as his wife is unable to work, drive or cook meals. George and Natalka also care of their two beautiful grandchildren, Christian and Christina. Your donation will go directly to the family to use as they need. We’d like to give George some peace of mind knowing that we will all join in to help care for his family. Every donation will make a big difference. Funds will be directed to George's daughter, Myraslava (Rosh) Lobsinger, who has power of attorney. Thank you!
