John Gray is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Willie Shelmire.
Family, friends, and co-workers, a tragic event has happened to our beloved bus driver Mr. Willie Shelmire. While at home this past week, Mr. Shelmire was sleeping at his home when one of the electrical outlets caught fire. His entire house burned, however Mr Shelmire was able to make it out ok. Now the hard part comes for Mr. Shelmire, rebuilding and getting back on his feet. This is where we come in to help. Mr. Shelmire has been driving the buses for us here at the Dunham School and for my bands for several years now, and he has been faithfully showing up whenever we need him. Now he needs our help while getting through this rough phase of rebuilding. I understand that many of you receiving this don't know Mr. Shelmire, but you know ME, and I am asking you to pitch in something, anything to help towards this effort. Do not cast this to the side just because you don't know him. He isn't asking for your help, I AM! So if you can give $5, $20, $50, $100, whatever please do it today, right now. He needs somewhere to lay his head, some clothes to wear, money for food, gas for his car, and some minutes on his cell phone, etc. so that he can get some piece of mind while he gets back on his feet. Just so we are clear, that is what the funds will be used for.
