Yogurt Jungle will be raising money throughout the week and donating 20 percent of their total profits from this coming weekend to the Nate Ford Memorial Fund.
Yogurt Jungle owner Sharilynn Hewitt hopes the money raised will help the family with expenses after last weekend’s tragedy. Though she was not contacted by the Ford family, Hewitt felt the need to help the family and community heal in some way.
“I just want to help out,” Hewitt said. “This is a tragedy that’s felt throughout the whole community. I want to do what I can for the family.”
Yogurt Jungle will have a container on the counter to collect cash donations this week. They will also donate 20 percent of all profits made on Saturday and Sunday to the Nate Ford Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo
