Benefit today

Hey, if anyone is in or around Saginaw, Michigan today, they are having a benefit for my Uncle Jim right now. It's at the Tim Horton's on State Street until 10 p.m. A portion of anything you buy today will go toward his giant medical bill.

  1. What a great way to help Jim and let him know how much he is appreciated. People melt my heart with their generosity.

  2. You should definitely set something up – or tell us where to send some $$. Many of your friends and fans would love to help.

  3. There was a huge response to Jim’s fundraiser. It was all put together by fellow police officers in conjunction with the owner of the local Tim Horton restaurants who knows Jim because he went there regularly for coffee. It is such a comfort to see how much Jim is loved by his colleagues. There were police cars from the city, township, Carrollton, State police, and more. There were 911 operators, family, friends, children, grandchildren, motorcycle compatriates, nurses and other staff from the hospital, people who didn’t know him but wanted to help. Some people put $100.00 bills into the collection bucket. He is loved by so many people. I may have been there when Jessica was. Thanks to her and everyone else who participates in this. A two month hospitalization is costly even when one has insurance.

  4. Not to get political or anything, but it angers me that a sick person in this country needs to have a fundraiser to pay for his medical care. Who says health care isn’t already being rationed?

  5. Thanks for going, Jessica! I’m glad there has been a good turnout, and I heard it made the news. It’s an appropriate place for a fundraiser, cause Uncle Jim likes him the coffee. He is in the hospital, and he knows all about what is going on, and he is very grateful.

  6. So I went to Tim Horton’s around 6:30 and there were quite a few people there. I also saw it on the news this evening. They have cop cars sitting out and it really seems like Saginaw is coming together to help.
    I really hope that all of our addictions to coffee can help him.

  7. YES! Set something up. I have been wondering how to help without asking for all of Jim’s personal info. This will work!

  8. That never occurred to me, Gladys. I guess if anyone wanted to, they could contribute to Marvin’s PayPal account or something. Should I set something up, you think?

    They just put a Cold Stone Creamery in the State St. Tim Hortons a few weeks ago and I’ve been meaning to go over there and check it out and get some coffee. So I’ll be heading over because well….Its for a good cause so I’m in!
