Fundraisers and Awareness

David was the primary breadwinner for the Bird family.  While he is missing, his family cannot access the types of financial safety nets (life insurance, 401k, Social Security) available to other families whose husband or father is deceased.   If you would like to help the Bird family through this difficult time, please consider donating online through  or mail your contribution to:

The Bird Family Trust
PO Box 234
Millington, NJ 07946
