Curley to Host Fundraiser for Gabriel Clarke
The Curley School eighth grader was shot last Friday in Roxbury on his way to church.
The Curley K-8 School community is rising in support of a 13-year-old who was the victim of gun violence last week.
Gabriel Clarke, 13, was shot in the stomach on Humboldt Avenue in Roxbury Jan. 11 while on his way to meet his mother at 7th Day Adventist Church on Seaver Street, according to multiple media outlets. He’s recovering at Boston Medical Center.
The Curley parent community is hosting a bake sale fundraiser on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school, according to a post on the school’s website.
The school is asking people to donate baked goods, coffee, juice, water or their time.
Proceeds will benefit the Clarke family through Gabriel Clarke’s recovery.
Drop-off donations will be accepted at the Centre St. entrance at 9:45 a.m. or contact email@example.com for alternative arrangements, according to the post.
