"I would like to nominate Jill & Eric Fitzmorris and their 3 children for the Paint It Forward award. They are a hardworking family with another baby on the way and who give so much back to our community. Jill volunteers as President for the Lawrence Autism Society helping families with special needs through support groups & social events. She also works full time as a school social worker helping children pre-k to 12th grade & their families. Eric currently stays home to care for their 3 young children but also plays guitar & sings at nursing homes every week for senior citizens. Eric also volunteers with young adults w disabilities & helps them make their own music. Jill & Eric have a baby due this Oct, a 2 year old daughter Cambria, a 5 year old daughter Brenya and a beautiful 4 year old son Ridley who has nonverbal Autism & other health issues. They are living on one income but are still give so much back & are the kindest and most positive people I know. I truly hope you will consider them for this award. I know their home is in need of exterior and interior paint but they have been unable to save due to their son's health condition."
