GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A 5-year-old girl battling cancer, is getting a lot of support from a Southern Oregon school, as well as a business.  South Middle School in Grants Pass adopted Chloe Davison as their Sparrow.  That adoption was made possible by several sponsors, including Southern Oregon Elmer’s.

For the Hopkins, representing Southern Oregon Elmer’s at the assembly, it was a reminder of the support they received several years ago.

6 years ago this week, the Hopkins lost their child to a rare form of leukemia. Their 5-year-old, Kaden, was a Sparrow twice during his short life, which is why his parents understand the power of the organization.

Now, Kaden’s parents are paying it forward, sponsoring Sparrows through Terry’s employer, Southern Oregon Elmer’s.  The company has sponsored five sparrows to date.
