Church planning fundraiser for sick mother
Members of Hancock United Methodist Church have made plans for a fundraiser to help the medical expenses of one of their own, who is seriously ill.
Randi Twigg Wishard, a local young mother with two sons, is in need of a transplant of multiple organs.
The transplant is to take place soon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Her condition stems from diabetes, which she has had since early childhood.
On Saturday, Jan. 28, the church will hold a silent auction with a soup and sandwich bar.
Proceeds will benefit Randi through the Mid-Atlantic Multivisceral Transplant Fund. The silent auction will feature themed baskets, kitchen items, gift certificates and other items.
Soup and sandwiches will also be for sale.
Hours of the event are 4 to 8 p.m. in the church’s upper room hall.
