A group of Michigan City Firefighters were referred to Unity Foundation as a partner in establishing an online giving program to help support the family of Nathan Woessner. Nathan, age 6, was visiting Indiana Dunes National Park when he fell into a sinkhole on July 12, 2013. It took a team of 50 men three and a half hours to pry the boy from under 11 feet of sand. Woessner was taken to a children’s hospital in Chicago in critical condition, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Due to the extensive and international media coverage, the firefighters had already received inquiries from those seeking a way to help. Unity has never before utilized online giving for immediate emergency assistance. However, because of recent investments in technology, Unity was able to quickly respond to this unique emergency situation and begin the establishment of a fund to properly manage the received contributions.
If you would like to make a gift or speak to someone, please contact Pastor Brian Vickers, Rock River Christian Center, Rock Falls, IL email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
