I am starting this fundraiser to help Shirley get a mobile chair that is lightweight and easy to manage. It folds up nicely into the car and is very sturdy for her. It's only 47lbs. This chair would allow her to go out into the world and be freer to move about. Family is very important to Shirley. She wants to go with her family and enjoy activities with them and not be confined to home.
This woman has given so much to our community, here are a few of the accomplishments and volunteerisms that Shirley has done over the years:
*POW WOW Editor for 14 years (including setting up fields, publicity, sales, distributions, etc...) For you Gems out there!
*Volunteer of the Year at Jenny Lind Elementary in 2003
*Founder of the Reading is Fundamental Program at JLE
*Relay for Life Team (Stichers for Hope) raising over $300K for cancer
*United Methodist Youth Group Leader
*Calaveras Youth Soccer League - Soccer Coach
*Treasurer for JLE for 4 years
*Quilts of Honor for Wounded Warriors (making quilts for soliders)
*Valley Springs Boosters helping to raise funds for the Fireworks over the Lake - 7 years
*Librarian for the Dialysis Centers (keeping them stocked with reading materials for the patients)
*Participated and won 4 Gold Medals, 1 Silver Medal in the *National Kidney Foundation Transplant Olympics
For this woman who has done so much for others, let's give her a huge donation to buy her a beautiful mobile accessible chair for her to enjoy the rest of her life with her family and friends and not be confined to home!
This beautiful outstanding giver of a person deserves the best. Let's help her reach this goal!
