Rob Lindgren Family Fund

$51,157 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 342 people in 4 months
Created July 16, 2018
Rob Lindgren, 53, lost his brave battle with pancreatic cancer on Sunday, July 15, 2018. 

Rob had an amazingly positive impact on literally hundreds of lives as a passionate educator and coach (28-year career with District 214), youth ministry leader, and volunteer that gave so much to his community. 

As a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend to so many, Rob lived a truly selfless life in service of others.  His example and dedication is a gift to all who knew him.

The Lindgren family is now left facing overwhelming medical bills and the cost of the college education for their three kids.  Funds will be used for these purposes and to support the family with future financial obligations.

Friends,

I am THRILLED to report that as of today we have reached 2/3 of our fundraising goal in support of the Lindgren family! What an incredible showing of love and generosity. THANK YOU to all who have contributed so selflessly, in so many ways.

But there is still more to do.

Please continue to support this beautiful family that have touched so many lives. The faith and strength that Jenny and the kids have shown since losing Rob has been truly inspiring. They are blessed with the love of an amazing community and we need to continue to lift them up however we can.

PLEASE continue to share our fundraising messages. Every single contribution is a blessing that helps ease an enormous burden.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season.

With heartfelt thanks,

Barry
