COLLIER COUNTY, Fla - Two separate funds have been set up to help the Douglas family. Monday morning Cecilia Douglas and her two daughters were killed when their car crashed into a canal just off Alligator Alley.
Cecilia worked as a co-manager at Ann Taylor Factory Store in Naples for the last year and a half. Her district manager Erica Ellis and her husband Mike set up a fund for the family. They live in Jupiter and don't know Cecilia well, but felt setting up a fund was the right thing to do
"From our experience, the financial piece is something you don't think about during the time but after the fact it's definitely a consideration after medical bills and funeral costs, so we're hoping to help with whatever costs the family needs," says Mike Ellis.
As news of the tragedy spread, clients of Cecilia's went into her store to ask how they can help. "There's a loyal cliental that went to that location and Cecilia just had a ton of clients that absolutely loved visiting her and shopping with her," says Erica Ellis.
The two set up a fund on www.youcaring.com. If you would like to donate, you can click on the link below:
