Help Simmons Farm

As we all know, Simmons Farm is in the middle of a crisis.  They are heartbroken about anyone that has become ill. This could have happened to anyone, anywhere. It is a common parasite.  But this family NEEDS OUR HELP!!  Anyone who knows the Simmons family knows how hard they work. While we are in the house complaining about how awful it is outside in the rain and snow, they are out there working in it, caring for their animals, planting seeds, harvesting, the hard work never ends! They love their community and we love them back.  This shutdown of their farm is putting them in a dire financial situation.  They don't have reserves to keep their farm going.  They depend on the petting zoo, selling their cheese and other amazing products and the pet and cuddle brings much needed money  at a time of year when they do not make much money otherwise.  This has all been shut down until further notice.  They cannot survive this without our help. Please consider helping this loving, caring, hardworking family. We are lucky to have this amazing farm in our community. It is time for the community to give back. P.S. I had to beg Karla to allow me to make this. But even she knows without it, she doesn't think they can make it. They are a proud family.  They wouldn't allow me to do this unless this was a desperate situation. Please help.
