Tomorrow there will be a funeral service for Takeimi Rao, the 14 year old girl who passed away at her own slumber party this past weekend after a drinking accident. The funeral is at 2pm at St. Eugene’s Cathedral in Santa Rosa. Afterwards, there will be a potluck reception at the same campus. Because this has received so much attention in the media, the family is expecting a large number of people to attend – and they need your help.
If you’ve been wondering what you can do to assist a family in need, here is one way you can.
The first thing they need is food. While the reception after the funeral is a potluck, they are concerned that not enough people are aware of this fact. So I am asking if any of you are able to donate food – from large quantities to a batch of your favorite cookies – it would be much appreciated.
Paper plates, napkins, cups, soda, plastic utensils…. These are also needed.
They are also in need of volunteers to help organize and set up at the service. This group would need to show up at 2pm at St. Eugene’s. Or you can stay afterwards to help with cleanup. If you can volunteer your time, please let me know.
***NOTE: Paper products and supplies are no longer needed. But they are still very much in need of food or desserts. These can be dropped off at the Becker Center on the St. Eugene’s Campus (the building at the end of the parking lot) at 2pm.***
