A friend and a staple in Tacoma’s community, suffered an accident, when her van carrying herself and her 9-year-old daughter was hit by a semi truck on their way to school when the truck ran a red light. At this time, the young girl is still in the hospital. My heart goes out to them and wishes them both a speedy recovery.
Also in the van were holiday gifts from her daughter’s Girl Scout troop for two needy United Way families. The gifts that were in the van are not accessible due to the accident, and may be damaged.
Although we cannot reverse this accident, please consider donating replacement gifts tomorrow, Saturday, December 15th, from 12-3p.m. at Bradley Lake Park in Puyallup, WA at 531 31st Ave SE.
Items needed include toys, winter clothes and household items. For a complete list of needed items, please email the Girl Scout troop directly at gstroop43602 [at] gmail.com. Click the above link for the news story for more information.
Thinking of and praying for the DeRosa family!
