Already, more than $20,000 has been raised through the website Meal Train.
In a statement to News 18, Ashley Peggs writes:
" In this time of darkness, the outpouring of love and support has given me a light to focus on. There are no words to truly express how grateful I am to be surrounded by such an amazing community.
My girls and I have been shown so much generosity and compassion from family, friends, neighbors, teachers, staff members, and even complete strangers. "
The community has already pledged meals for the Peggs family through April. If you'd like to help, you can donate here.
