Victoria & Ava Ericks Scholarship

$8,415 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 95 people in 8 months
On June 14, 2017 Christian Ericks, age 46, unexpectedly passed away. Chris left behind two beautiful daughters who were the pride and joy of his life; Victoria age 13, and Ava age 10.  Chris was a loving and devoted father and had just recently retired from the Lansing Michigan Fire Department.  He was captain of No. 4 Firestation. During his tenure as a Firefighter/
Paramedic Chris saved countless lives throughout his 25 year career.

Due to unforeseen circumstances and the untimely death of Chris, there is no support or college fund for his daughters.  Additionally Firefighters & Policemen do not participate in the social security system so Chris's children are not entitled to social security or any portion of his firefighter's pension.

We pray that you can touch the lives of these young girls in the way that Chris positively impacted the lives of so many.  Your support will make a huge difference in the lives of two beautiful children who are left without a father.

This fund will be administered by Victoria and Ava's grandmother, Marsha Ericks.

It's time to discontinue the campaign for Ava and Victoria's scholarship fund. The support through GOFUNDME , direct personal donations and the silent auction benefit has been phenomenal. Over $20,000.00 has been raised to support the girls in their education. Thank you so much everyone and may God bless each of you for your support in this important cause. It is a tribute to the memory of Chris of your love and support for him.
If anyone desires to make an additional donation please send it directly to Marsha Ericks, 105 Hartwell Terrace, Mason, Mi. 48854. Best Regards, Marsha

THANK YOU so much for your wonderful support for Chris's girls, Victoria and Ava. I am sorry that I was remiss in understanding the protocol for GO FUND ME donations which precluded people from donating after 30 days. I have now rectified the situation for those of you who may still want to give.
There is a SILENT AUCTION benefit scheduled at CHARLAR PLACE in Holt on September 15, 2017
it is located at : 4230 Charlar Drive Holt, Mi. 48842
Appetizers, cash bar, live music, and many great merchant auction donations will be available. Please join us for this worthy cause
