Back in early January, ELNA board members played a pivotal role in opening a donation account to assist longtime neighbor and advocate, Saunny Scott. Saunny is at risk of losing the home she has lived in for 30+ years, raising 4 children there, all with disabilities, and has redone the home to suit the needs of those now-adult children. In addition, Saunny is a longtime advocate for all Lawrence citizens in very real ways — helping to improve accessibility for people with disabilities, successfully working to encourage the city bus to run at night, as well as being instrumental in the beginning of Lawrence Community Shelter.
I read the story in the LJWorld and immediately sent an email out to fellow ELNA board members. In no time at all, personal donations flooded in to raise the money needed by Saunny’s friends to open a donation account. Three months later, Saunny is still working to advocate for all of us, and the account is still open and taking donations. Please visit any Douglas County Bank location and let them know you’d like to make a donation for Saunny Scott. All the tellers know what to do.
Thanks East Lawrence.
