The Imlay City community is rallying around a 12-year old girl who is in critical condition at Hurley Medical Center in Flint after a Feb. 8 snowmobile accident.
As of the last report, Michaela Wolford is currently stable but she has a long, hard road of healing ahead of her. Prayers and support are needed.
Her recovery will incur large medical expenses.
For those wishing to donate to the Wolford family, there is now an account set up Security Credit Union for the Wolford family. Organizers say 100 percent of those proceeds will go to the family.
There is also a Go-Fund-Me page up for the family but there is a 10 percent fee of the donations are collected.
Also, the Imlay City Kroger store will be doing a hotdog fundraiser 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For a $4 donation, a hotdog, drink and chips will be provided, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the family. Also donations are being collected at Evie's Hair Salon, 418 E. Third St., Imlay City. And, the Imlay City Eagles is planning a benefit dinner for the family, but haven't set a date yet.
Wolford is the daughter of Tim and Julia Wolford. Tim is an Imlay City Police Department Sergeant. Her family members have served the community for more than 30 Years.
Michaela is a sixth-grade student at Imlay City Middle School. School officials provided counselors and social workers earlier in the week for students at the school who needed help coping with the incident.
