  • Prayers & Credit Union Account for Brother Jim Ferry...
    Updated On: Feb 23, 2021

    Brother Jim Ferry was in a tragic hunting accident which resulted in him being air lifted to University of Chicago with life threatening conditions.

    On the evening of February 9th Jim went into the woods to scout where he was going to place his coyote traps, being the cautious hunter he is, he took his shotgun for his protection. 

    While tracking these coyotes who have become a nuisance to the community, Jim slipped on an icy path causing his gun to discharge resulting in life threatening injuries. 

    Thankfully, Jim didn’t let his severe injuries cloud his quick thinking as he was able to use his cellphone to contact a nearby neighbor for help. The neighbors rushed out to help and called 911. 

    After consulting with the doctors we have been informed that Jim will have to undergo multiple surgeries. Anyone who can please donate towards Jim’s medical expenses is greatly appreciated no matter the dollar amount, every little bit helps.  The Ferry family appreciates every single donation.

    A special account for Brother Jim Ferry has been set up at the Local 697 Federal Credit Union.  Local 697 members can transfer funds over the phone, in person or from the drive-thru.  Please referance the "Special Account for Jim Ferry".

    Donations can also be mailed directly to the Local 697 Credit Union
