Acts of Kindness: KMS girls reach out to family

(Continued)

Knoxville —

Megan said the family does not like to ask people for money. They do appreciate the girls' efforts to help them, but if there is anything the Lettingtons seek from the community, communication and prayers top the list. Megan said they would love to receive cards, photos, letters, thinking of you notes - just little things to remind them of home during this difficult time. Loren and Megan both appreciate any and all prayers people want to send up for Loren's recovery and for the family in general. 

If you would like to make a donation to the fundraiser Dingel and Hatch have organized, money can be mailed or dropped off at KMS. Cards, letters, etc., can be mailed to the Lettington family at:

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

Room 728

345 East Superior Street

Chicago, IL 60611

We intend to follow up on the March 15 dance and hope to stay in communication with the Lettington family as Loren continues his recovery.
