Support for Fugate Family



Support for Fugate Family

Dear LCSS Community,

Thank you all so much for your outpouring of love and support for the Fugate family, during this time of grief and adjustment.  As many of you know, Kristina Fugate passed away, unexpectedly, over spring break.  The Fugate family has been a member of the LCSS Community for many years-Kristina, herself, graduated from Central Catholic in 1998.  Kristina is survived by her husband, Byron, three children (Liam-7th grade at CC, Caleb-5th Grade at St. Boniface, and Mia-Kindergarten at St. Mary), as well as many loving family members (including the Long and Weaver families, who also have children at LCSS). We know that you all are ready and willing to help in whatever way possible; and, below, you will find the details of how best to move forward with donations, help, etc.

All of the LCSS schools will be taking up a collection for the Fugate family-for groceries, bills, child expenses, and anything else needed at this time.  There are two ways that you can financially help that will be of great impact for the family.

To begin with, the Fugate family has set up a Benefit Account at Hoosier Heartland State Bank. If you would like to send your donation to one of the schools, through the end of next week (4/8/22), we will be sure your donation is put into the correct account. They will accept both cash and check donations.  If you send a CASH donation, please place a note in the envelope that says “Byron Fugate, for Benefit of Kristina Fugate Family. If you prefer to write a CHECK, please be sure to make checks payable to Byron Fugate for the Benefit of Kristina Fugate Family-this can also go in the Notes section of the Check. If you would rather mail your donation directly to the bank, please be sure to make the same notations, and note the address for this bank is Linden, IN.

Secondly, all schools will participate in a gift card collection to help with meals and groceries during this adjustment period. Any and all gift cards are most welcome; however, if interested, we have compiled a list of the Fugate’s favorite places if you would like to choose from those.  

  • Preferred grocery stores include Payless and Walmart. 
  • Preferred restaurants include Jimmy Johns, Texas Roadhouse, McDonalds, Red Lobster, Cheddars, Burger King, and LongHorn Steakhouse. 

Again, the family is most grateful for any gift card you would be willing to send, these are merely suggestions.

And, lastly, but of the utmost importance, please keep the Fugate family (as well as the Long and Weaver families) in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you again for taking the time to help our fellow LCSS family members in their time of need. This community is a true blessing to be a part of, and the Fugate family is extraordinarily grateful for the kindness and generosity they’ve already been shown.

We will accept donations now through April 8th.  Please send donations to the school office, and the office will be sure that the monetary donations go directly to the Hoosier Heartland Bank, and that the gift cards go directly to the Fugate family.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Elizabeth Bonner at ebonner@lcss.org.
