Fund Raising Reception to Be Held for Burn Victim Gabe James

On June 6th, Gabriel James, grandson of former Trustee Rich James, was burned by a backyard fire.  As the son of a firefighter, it was one of the worst things his family could imagine.  He sustained second- and third-degree burns throughout his body and, as a result, was in the burn unit of Akron Children's Hospital for fifteen days.  Due to the extent of the required skin grafts, he will need surgery for decades to come, as he grows.  Accordingly, his family is holding a fundraising event to help raise money for current and future medical expenses.  

The event will be held at the Northfield VFW, from 5 to 11 pm, on Friday, August 14th.  Please see the following flyer for additional information, or to submit a donation via GoFundMe: https://www.northfieldcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Gabe-James-notification.pdf.
