One of our Indian Community members, Ghanshyam Dave age 43 passed away recently. He was alone and could not get to buy his Diabetes prescription drugs. There may be many people in the community who succumb to unfortunate circumstances with no immediate family here.
We at IACA should extend our support by setting up a fund for this cause (proposing the name “Last rites funds for the needy”). Anybody can donate to it and EC can disburse to the needy.
The contributions currently will defray the costs of Funeral/Cremation for Late Mr. Dave and to help Dave’s 85 year old ailing mother in Pune. Any surplus funds will be escrowed for future similar mishaps but restricted only for Cremation purposes for any Indian American member of our community.
We hope everyone will contribute generoulsy to this cause and help families such as Mr. Dave’s to get through these hard times. This is the least we can do for our community.
Please mail your checks to IACA and make them payable to “IACA – Last rites funds for the needy”.
Please confirm your committment level and participation to firstname.lastname@example.org or just mail your checks to IACA and make sure to specify these are for the “last rites funds for the needy”. We will start the fund with $250 contribution from IACA.
The last rites will be performed at 10am at the Wages & Sons Funeral Home, Stone Mountain Chapel, 1040 Main Street, Stone Mountain, Ga 30086, Phone No 770 469 9811 on Sunday, September 25th. Cremation will follow immediately after the last rites/puja and between 10AM-11AM, on Sunday Sept 25t. Please do attend and show your support.
