On July 22nd of this past summer, four Slinger seniors were involved in a car crash. Emilee Majewski, Paige Semrau, Rachel Manganaro, and Mallory Wiest all sustained injuries that required hospitalization for various amounts of time. All of the girls are mostly recovered at this point, however, the cost of the medicine and doctor’s care that got them to that point is not at all cheap.

After hearing about the car crash, Jen Boehlke knew she needed to help the girls in any way she could. And since a relative of hers had been hospitalized a few years prior, she knows how expensive medical bills can be. Determined to help the girls and their families, Boehlke began looking into different ways that would help relieve the cost of treatment. After conferring with Deanna Cagle (the leader of Slinger’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and Mr. Sievers, it was decided that accounts would be set up at a bank for each of the girls. The families of the crash victims were contacted, and within a few short weeks, the bank accounts were up and running.

To make a donation, go to the First National Bank in Slinger. Tell the person behind the counter you would like to make a donation into the savings account of Emilee Majewski, Paige Semrau, Rachel Manganaro, or Mallory Wiest.
