MEADOW POLLACK MEMORIAL FUND

It is with profound sadness and intense grief that we are letting everyone know that our friend and family member Meadow Pollack did not survive the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL on February 14.

While the family grieves this unimaginable loss, we are setting up this GoFundMe page with their knowledge and blessing, to provide a place for everyone to get additional information, post their condolences, and hopefully donate to the memorial fund we have set up in Meadow’s name.  

All funds will go towards the costs associated with Meadow’s funeral arrangements, but more importantly we hope to have enough money to help Meadow’s mom Shara , a single mom, get the help and long-term counseling she will need.  Shara is a real estate agent in the Parkland area who works on commission only and has no other source of income besides that which she goes out and earns.  As you can imagine, there can be no timetable for her to return to work or any other sense of a “normal” life after this and she will have no income, other than the help provided by family and friends at this time.  My sister is Shara's closest friend and is with her at this time. (I need to disclose this because GoFundMe is vetting all funds related to Parkland.)

For those who may not have known Meadow personally, she was 17 years old and a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School, looking forward to her senior prom, then graduating in June and going on to Lynn University in the Fall.  She was a beautiful, warm, loving and intelligent soul whose sense of humor and loyalty to friends made her beloved by all who knew her.  We hope that her death, along with the other classmates who were killed, injured or otherwise traumatized by this horrific incident will not be in vain. 

Our hope is that all who have lived through this event will take this feeling of grief, anger, shock and frustration with them and help fight to change our society so no other families will ever have to endure what these families are going through.  We will always remember Meadow and may she and the other victims rest in peace. Thank you.

Funeral is Friday, February 16, beginning at 12:30pm

The Kaplan/Pollack family have asked me to post the following update for both the many media outlets who have reached out, as well as family and friends:

“On behalf of the entire Kaplan/Pollack family, we ask that everyone please respect our privacy as we grieve with close friends and family. We would like to observe a traditional mourning period without any fanfare. While we mourn for the loss of our beloved Meadow, our thoughts continually turn to all the others who are suffering at this time. We share your pain. We would also like to thank everyone who has sent their thoughts, prayers and condolences. The family will decide if they will be available for comments after this Thursday, but for now we have no further comment. Thank you.”
