Tim Sterling Technology Fund

Organized by: Frank Polack

THE STORY:

For over 40 years, practically everyone in the Gainesville FL community has at one time or another seen the walking salesman with the brown suit and impaired gait. Many have given him a ride on a hot or rainy day. Injured at an early age, he nevertheless worked around his injury and has supported himself and his daughter.
His positive message inspires us to deal with our situation in life, and to make the best of it by "doing what you have to do".

As a way to honor him for the inspiration he provides, we'd like to raise funds to purchase a computer for him, along with internet service for a period of time.

Tim was my neighbor growing up on NE 20th Avenue. I used to walk by his house nearly every day. I recently ran into him, and confessed my crime of stealing the green pears off his parent's pear tree when I was a kid. It always seemed those pears never did get ripe! He laughed and said, "They never did!" 4 years ago
