Manpreet’s friends have raised a fundraiser for her grieving family. ‘Our dear friend Manpreet left us too soon, leaving a void in our lives that can never be filled,’ Gurdip wrote on GoFundMe. “As we grieve her passing, we want to come together to honour her memory and support her family in their time of need.”
The fundraiser has drawn in just under $25,000 of it’s $30,000 target with more than 670 donations made in just five days. ‘Your support means so much to us and Manpreet’s family, helping them navigate through this challenging period,’ Grewal wrote.
