Mrs. Bobo taught at Claremont High School for 38 years. Unfortunately, she now suffers from a range of health issues necessitating 24 hour in home living assistance. Mrs. Bobo is living on a fixed income insufficient to cover the cost of this in home care. If we don't help Mrs. Bobo make up her income deficit she will be forced to leave the Claremont home she has lived in for over forty years and move into a care facility, long before she is ready or there is any necessity for doing so.
Our goal is to raise $72,000 to keep Mrs. Bobo in her home for five more
years through her 80th birthday. Funds donated will supplement Mrs.
Bobo's income to help pay for the $4,800 monthly cost of 24-hour care and
medication. Donations will be deposited into a special account, the Ruth
M. Bobo Fund, at the Bank of America in Claremont, CA. All
donations are considered gifts of money to Mrs. Bobo and, as such, are
not tax deductible. If any donated money goes unused, or if we raise
more than needed, we would like to establish a philanthropic fund in
Mrs. Bobo’s name, guided by Claremont High School students, benefiting charitable organizations in our community.
who knows Mrs. Bobo takes just a moment to donate, even a
modest amount, we would easily reach our goal. Once you have donated, help us spread the word by forwarding the link to
this website to everyone you know in our extended Claremont High School community, and
post the link to your Facebook or other social media account. It is up to us to help Save Mrs. Bobo! Please donate now. Thank

Mrs. Bobo's 75th Birthday Party was held on Saturday, March 16, 2013, and hosted by Walter's Restaurant. More than sixty people attended the event, allowing Mrs. Bobo to celebrate her birthday in style, enjoying the company of friends, family and many of her former students. Thanks to generous donations made by many of Mrs. Bobo's supporters, and thanks to the generous donation of a percentage of proceeds from the event by Walter's Restaurant, we were able to raise $1806.33 on Mrs. Bobo's behalf during the month of March! Mrs. Bobo is honored by the support and would like to convey her sincere thanks to everyone who made her birthday such a wonderful occasion.
