Update on June 2 from Cindy Folkler: “The $10,000 goal to provide assistance to Lilly Quinonez and her son, Nacho was met (exceeded)! I wanted to let you know how very grateful Lilly and Nacho are for the outpouring of support they received from InMenlo readers and community members. They send heartfelt thanks to everyone for their prayers and generosity.”
“Our wonderful Parent Outreach Coordinator at Menlo-Atherton High School, Lilly Quinonez, deserves our support.
“Her beloved son, Ignacio (Nacho), was seriously burned on both of his hands in an awful accident at a construction site where he was working.
“Lilly is a single parent who cares for hundreds of students and families at Menlo-Atherton. It is our turn to help her.
“Our goal is to come together and cover her rent for the next four months as she focuses on getting her son all of the care, physical therapy and other help he is going to need.
“Any donation is appreciated.”
