John is a 4th grader at West Gates Avenue Elementary School. He was struck by a car at the corner of Montauk Highway and 13th Street on Saturday night. He is currently in ICU, but we remain optimistic that he will make a full recovery!
When something like this happens a lot of unforeseen expenses are incurred by the family. Thank you so much to all of the people in the West Gates (and Lindenhurst) community who have reached out to ask how they can help. Please give what you can. Adopt A House will be giving all the proceeds from this fundraiser to the family, through our principal. f you would rather give a gift card you may send it to the main office at the school. (FYI, they will be there all summer.)
John's mom is so appreciative of all the support that the community has shown for her son and her family. She has asked that we keep praying for John.
