Sarah Ewing was the 24-year-old woman who was killed in Kelley Square when she was pinned down by the rear wheels of a tractor trailer on Thursday night. Her family had been going through a tough time before this tragic incident transpired. Her brother’s father passed away last year, which was not easy on the family emotionally or financially.
Although Sarah was a Hudson resident, from what I have been told she was a Worcester regular, and deserves support from the Worcester community. Quite frankly, if she was hanging out at the Hotel Vernon, she sounds like she was a pretty cool girl. There’s no way to make sense of such a tragedy, but the Turtleboy community is large enough, kind enough, and caring enough to help this family out by offsetting some of the costs for the funeral.
We have set the goal amount for $1,000, because I have no idea what to expect. But in December when the Toys for Tots charity was robbed outside of the Lucky Dog cafe, Turtle Riders responded in force by donating over $2,000 and donating over 400 toys. I was blown away by the generosity. Some people have criticized the Turtleboy community for having a lack of compassion and empathy. Show them how wrong they are.
