Hello Viking Nation !
You may or may not have heard about the House Fire last evening at the home of Bob and Carol Visoskas. Bob, Carol, Kyle, Danielle and Jenna are all fine,
but now going thru the first phases of getting back to some level of normal living.
The Viking Nation family always help each other both on and off the field, especially at our greatest time of need.
Now is one of those times that we need to come together and support one of our own. Bob and Carol's children Kyle, Danielle, and Jenna have been a huge part of the Viking family.
Kyle played for LVF and PHHS and came back to LVF to give his time as a volunteer coach.
Danielle has cheered for both LVC and PHHS, and Jenna cheered several years for LVC.
The Visoskas family will need many things in the days to come such as household goods, clothes, gift cards and possibly furniture.
There are two Drop locations:
Comerford home - 39 Robin Hood Road
Breslauer home - 8 Deerfield Rd
Little Vikings and PHFPA will be helping to organize donations.
Questions can be sent to either firstname.lastname@example.org or PHFPA@gmail.com
Also, 2 gofundme accounts have already been created, you can help the family by donating to these as well.
On behalf of the Visoskas family and LVF/PHFPA we thank you in advance for your support.
