clubs and social groups to join the boutique in raising funds by

holding sales, donating a portion of a selected day's receipts,

putting out donation baskets, holding pot-luck meals and raffles or

finding other creative ways to help contribute.

Zainos, 36, who was also injured in the accident that killed her

sister. Zainos is recovering from severe head and neck trauma and her

family members are helping to care for the children.
