School District Holds Fundraiser for Local Family

POPLAR GROVE (WIFR) -- The North Boone School District is reaching out to the survivors involved in a fatal car crash.

The district held a fundraiser at its headquarters today in Poplar Grove. Residents brought in food and made cash donations to the Tellez family, who was involved in the fatal car accident that killed two Belvidere North students last week. Gonzallo Tellez remains in the hospital recovering from injuries leaving the family with no income while he heals.

"People always wonder what it is that we can do. This is something small, but hopefully it will have an impact. Just to do something positive for the family and let them know they're supported and cared about as far as the community goes is huge”, says Transportation Director Ed Mulholland.
The district is still taking donations at North Boone Elementary School and the district headquarters.
