North Bay Haven Cares -  "Wearing a Red Shirt Day", May 11

Two of our North Bay Haven families have been faced with some extreme hardships this spring.  


On February 21, Michael Locke, a 6th grade student at NBHMS hit his head resulting in a severe brain injury leaving him unable to stand or walk in addition to other medical issues. He is in the Texas Children's Hospital TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Rehab Center in Hospital Texas and has a long road of recovery ahead.  


Then, on April 5, The Faircloth family's home burned down; they lost everything including a cherished family pet.  The Faircloth's have 2 students at NBH: Ricky, in 6th grade and Clayton in 4th.


Please join us on Friday, May 11, in supporting these NBH families by participating in "Wearing a Red Shirt Day"  for a minimum $3.00 donation.  Wearing a red shirt this day is to show these students and their families how much everyone here at NBH Cares!  Students are also allowed to wear jeans with their red shirt. Money raised will be divided among these two families.
