The heartbreak that follows a fatal car accident is immeasurable. When a family loses someone they love, they can be left wondering how to move forward. A family in Greenwood, Indiana has found a way to not only honor the memory of daughter who was killed in an accident but also help others in their community.
Megan was a junior in high school when she passed away. Christmas was approaching in 2005 and the teen was out shopping for presents for the Children’s Bureau in Indianapolis, a social service agency that works on behalf of abused and neglected children and families throughout Indiana. It was on this shopping trip that Megan was involved in the car accident that took her life.
Megan’s Fund was established in 2006 with the mission to buy presents and everyday necessities for families around the Holidays. The charity hopes to continue the young woman’s legacy of helping others in need.
According to Megan’s mother, “We’re trying to make the best out of [a] bad situation. I don’t think [Megan] realized how many people she actually touched or could ever touch. I think she would be completely amazed and humbled to know how many people thought of her and wanted to continue the work she was doing.”
Since the charity was established the number of donations has steadily increased. Now hundreds have donated and Megan’s Fund hopes to expand so that they can aid the Children’s Bureau not only at Christmas but throughout the year.
