Theurkauf Family Fund
An Education memorial fund was established in memory of Thomas F. Theurkauf Jr., who lost his young life in the World Trade Center disaster. The focus of the fund has been expanded to include general support for inner-city children including food and other services in addition to education. Uses of the fund are at the discretion of the Board of Directors with input from the Theurkauf family."



We are looking for help with babysitting for any amount of time between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. school days.

We sincerely appreciate anyone interested in helping us in our mission. Please call Margaret or Grace at 522-3144 or 549-4188.
