Griggs Student Fund Created To Help Winnona Park Family

Diane forwards this note from Winnona Park Elementary School Principal Greg Wiseman…

Over the holidays, a Winnona Park student lost his mother. Robin Griggs, mother of second grader David, tragically died of a brain aneurism on December 22. The family members that are taking care of David and his older siblings have stated that they would welcome donations at this time to help with remaining expenses and care for the children. At this time, the Griggs Student Fund has been set up for this purpose. Donations can be made to:

  • The Griggs Student Fund
  • Decatur First Bank
  • 1120 Commerce Dr.
  • Decatur, GA 30030
  • Attn: Ann Berg
  • Ph: 404-373-6549

We’d prefer donations be made directly to the bank, but if it is easier to bring donations to school (check only please) we will accept them here.

Thank you.

Thank you for your consideration.

Help Mikel Pittard’s Family Pay For Funeral Expenses

From resident Bailey Pendergrast…

We have set up a memorial fund at Decatur First Bank to help [Mikel Pittard’s] mother pay for funeral expenses.  I would like to reach as much of Decatur as I can and I think your blogs are the way to do it.  If people would like to contribute they can make checks out to Mikel Pittard Memorial Fund Send checks to:

Decatur First Bank
1120 Commerce Dr.
Decatur,Ga. 30030
Attn. Ann Berg

Time is of the essence since I think the funeral home wants cash up front to proceed.
