ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Well, Gresham Ford has accepted this challenge as well, but we decided to do things a little differently. Trying to keep things local, we’re giving and accepting donations that will go directly to people in our area that are suffering from this disease in the form of wheel chairs. So far, we’ve collected $200, which at our discounted rate of $150 per chair; we’ve purchased 1 and 1⁄4 chairs! Through our good friends at Adventist Hospice, we are targeting people right here so if you’ve seen all the icing going on but not really sure how you can help, here’s how! Come on down to Gresham Ford, make your check payable to “Adventist Hospice” and partner with us, keeping it local once again, helping the ALS sufferers right in our own back yard.
On another note, the first day of school is right around the corner. Don’t forget our Reynolds High students that are returning for the first time since the shooting. Sending that Happy Thought to give them encouragement and hope, will make the best of a bad situation possible. Write just a word or phrase on an envelope, or come by Gresham Ford and pick up a card that we’ve made especially for this, and send to; HOPE, P.O. Box 9, Troutdale, OR 97060, or go online to; http://www.prayersforreynolds.com/.
Remember as Peter Pan says, “Happy Thoughts make you fly”!!
