The Growing Fund

Friends, family and others have donated nearly $5,500 to baby Olivia’s fund.

“We knew there were a lot of people who loved Tommy,” Parkinson said. “So we had a good feeling that people would try to help a friend in need.”

Parkinson said they’ve been impressed with the response and level of charity displayed so far.

“We didn't think we’d get $5,000 as quickly as we did but now we’ve reached that target we will try to get more,” he said. “We think whatever we raise would go a long way.”
