We would like to share the most recent update on our dear Donna Schmidt, Volunteer Program Manager at Operation Hope. After five weeks in the hospital, Donna has just moved to a rehab facility in Malvern, PA. She is near her family home and siblings, which is of great comfort. Donna has quite the road ahead of her, with PT, OT, speech therapy and relearning to walk. Evidently, the car impact fractured her pelvis and right leg, and damaged her other leg. We understand she doesn’t remember the accident which is probably a blessing, but she is aware of everyone’s concern and support. Donna will need our continued support and encouragement to get through this stretch of rehabilitation. Cards and messages may be sent to “Donna Schmidt, Operation Hope, 636 Old Post Road, Fairfield, CT 06824,” and we will pass them along to her.

Thank you for sending love, healing thoughts and hope to Donna as she begins the next stage on her journey of recovery. Best wishes for a brighter 2021.
