In 1987, as she was losing her battle with Hodgkins’ Disease, Sara Shoff started a charitable fund to ease the financial burden for families in the New Carlisle area fighting medical battles.
The fund, named S.A.R.A. (Share And Remember Always), helped many families with bills, personal needs, transportation, and other requests. Many in the community donated to the fund over the years.
Sara was the daughter of Mary and the late Bill (Clayton W.) Shoff. Recently, the Shoff family transferred the remaining funds to the Michiana Ronald McDonald House. The purpose will be much the same and will continue to carry out Sara’s wishes.
