BENEFITING: Gift of Life Family House
We lost a family member and dear friend in Donnie Shaner on April 18th. He was treasured by his family, community and his softball girls. The 2016 Smyrna High School Softball Team would like to raise funds in his honor towards the Gift of Life Family House. The girls have worn tape around their wrists at times with the inscription “4DONNIE” and have dedicated the season to him. Mission Statement Gift of Life Family House serves as a "home away from home" for transplant patients and their families by providing temporary, affordable lodging and supportive services to those who travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for transplant-related care. Gift of Life Family House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. During Donnie’s time in the hospital, the Gift of Life Family House provided a place where his family, especially Cathy, could stay and find comfort and rest during a very difficult time. The 2016 Smyrna High School Softball team asks that you attend the softball game on May 19th at 4:15 at the Smyrna Softball Field. We will be selling snacks, refreshments, shirts, and other accessories. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Gift of Life Family House in Donnie’s memory. We will also have a jar for blank donations or you can donate directly here.
