Family needs help
My friend Kayla Flory and I, both sophomores at Eudora High School, have been trying to do everything we can to help out the John and Cindy Born family in their time of need. (Fire claims another Eudora home -- May 19 issue of The Eudora News).
We would really appreciate it if the community would help out by giving donations to help support the family. Donation cans are placed at various businesses around Eudora.
We appreciate everyone who has responded to our first letter and we hope to reach out to more families around the area to help.
The family was making preparations for their youngest son's graduation party, which was to be the next day, and were fixing up the house for that occasion when the fire broke out. They lost everything.
We have tried to get in touch with the Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Finally a friend told us that they heard our story. We aren't for sure if they want to submit our tape into the show or not, so we will keep our fingers crossed.
This town is great in coming together when someone or a family needs help. The donation boxes will be out as long as the family needs them to be.
We appreciate everything that has already been done. God bless.
