Funeral & Memorial for Myers Family

Jeremiah "JJ" Myers, an 11 year old boy who tragically died alongside his family members, Shanise (5), Shanta and Brandi, just days before Christmas, was a member of the Troy Boys & Girls Club for the past six years. He was a quintessential "Club Kid" who impacted the lives of so many staff, children and teens, parents and volunteers.

We are shocked and deeply saddened by this tragedy. It will be deeply felt by all his friends at the Club and throughout the community.

Money will be used to provide Mental Health services to the kids, families and the community as well as setting up a scholarship and living money for the surviving child, Isaiah, 16. Every dollar helps. Please donate today.

***UPDATE*** Thank you all for your donations! Isaiah's gaurdian, Shakera, has received the funds and will be ensuring that he is well taken care of and all of his needs will be met. Thank you again for your extreme generousity and kindness!
