A fund has been created to aid Terry and Sharon Lowell, an elderly Auburn couple who suffered the theft of $28,000 in savings.
Sheri Clark of Lewiston, the couple's counselor, is accepting aid on the Lowells' behalf.
Donations can be sent to Sheri Clark, Clinical Counseling of Lewiston, 35 Bardwell St., Lewiston, ME, 04240. Checks should be made out to "The Lowell Fund."
Offers of aid have been coming in since the couple's story was told in Sunday's Sun Journal.
Terry Lowell, 72, leads a maintenance crew at the Lewiston Multi-Purpose Center. His wife, Sharon, is 62 and has was diagnosed six years ago with Parkinson's disease.
In January, about $28,000 in cash was stolen from a nightstand, where it was wrapped in a T-shirt. In May, a caretaker was indicted for the theft.
The money had helped cover medical expenses and was intended to help Terry Lowell retire.
