Donnie & Peggy Thomas Empowerment Fund

Michigan City’s “gentle giant” and one of its best-ever athletes, Donnie Thomas, passed away in May of 2017.
Those who knew Thomas best describe him as an athlete, a teacher, a coach — but most of all, a great person who they were thankful to have in their lives. Donnie’s wife and children created this fund in his memory.
