Adopt-a-Bed update

Many thanks to those individuals and groups who have contributed to the Midway Shelter for abused women and their children. A number of the listed donors contributed several times in June. 

The women and children of the Midway Shelter thank: Gaby Dolphin & Alan Pryor, the Pipkin-Mcgrath family, Christine Buck, Harlyn Trayer, Brian & Kathleen Schumacher, Bay Area Chinese Bible Church and Paula Patillo-Dupree for their generous donations. Richard & Susan Osanna gave generously, along with: Maria Kerosky, Ph.D, Bill & Judy Norton,  Tomorr Haxhimali, Jay Dawson and Kathryn & Alan Hanley.

Virginia Krutilek, Pat & Norman Bowen, Linda & Russell Grant, Joanne Robinson, Ed & Peg Kofman and David & Joyce Denyven all made donations in memory of Alan Thompson. Scott Benson & Elizabeth Swartzman helped out selflessly, as did: Mary Lou Kurtz, Pam & Willem VandeKamp, Karen Kenney, Jim & Sharon Stehr, Ronald & Evelyn Coffman, Elizabeth & Katherine Legg and Girl Scout Troop 31402. I was personally touched that Carol Gerdes, M.D., donated in honor of my birthday. Three donors chose to remain anonymous.
