Thank you all for your generosity in sharing with Marilyn. Over the last several months, your gifts of money have helped to meet the immediate needs.

Caring for Marilyn and her children will be an ongoing process. To better reflect this reality, we have changed our fundraiser to a monthly goal of $750. The money you share to meet this monthly goal will be spent on the daily necessities of housing, groceries, and clothing.

Thank you again for the generous way you have shared. We realize that not everyone can share a large amount on a regular basis. However, ANY ongoing monthly amount you can afford to share with Marilyn and her family will be greatly appreciated. 

On November 17, 2020, Chad Martin passed away suddenly, leaving behind his wife Marilyn, and children Brandon (17), Marci (15), Jessica (12), and Erica (11). 

Chad will be remembered by his family, friends, and church family as a kind man. He was an enthusiastic singer, who loved to sing anywhere. He enjoyed working with children, and it showed in the effort he put into his role as Sunday School superintendent. He always had them smiling. In his last year, he put that same enthusiasm into facilitating youth activities for the church youth group.

Chad's motto was, "Figure out what needs to be done, and then do it." Chad worked hard, whether on the job or after hours on many side projects. He was a great provider for his family. He was always available to help with any church project. He would pitch in enthusiastically to any job or project that needed to be done. He lived Ecclesiastes 9:10: "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;"

Now Chad isn't here to do the heavy lifting. Marilyn needs her friends and family to help shoulder the load in the days, weeks, and years ahead. There are many bills to be paid at present, not to mention the day to day expenses of raising a family.

It’s our turn. We know what needs to be done. Will you help do it?
