UPDATE: As a result of the overwhelming response to support JJ's cause we have increased the goal amount to $30,000. Extra funds will be used to ensure a solid financial cushion for wheelchair maintenance as he continues to serve our community. Thank you all for the heartwarming support. It's great to be a Hilander!
After years of driving his motorized wheelchair to and from work as a substitute teacher at Kelso High School Mr Janke's "ride" has finally expired. Insurance no longer covers repairs and its time for a new and improved wheelchair. Rain or shine Mr. Janke has been a part of Kelso classrooms for years. His presence has touched the lives of countless students/staff and now it's time to show our appreciation. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to cover the cost of a new chair which includes a funding cushion for future wheelchair repairs. Please share this goal with others in an effort to quickly raise the needed funds.
We ARE Kelso!
