Captain Cookie raises $1,300 for junior who survived suicide attempt

Campus staple Captain Cookie and the Milkman raised $1,300 on Wednesday for the junior who survived a suicide attempt earlier this month.

All proceeds from the event will go to the GoFundMe campaign for Emily Thompson, who worked at the food truck for the last several months.

The fundraiser was affiliated with the GW chapter of the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association. Thompson is the group’s vice president.

The crowdfunding campaign, which Thompson’s brother started, is raising money for her medical bills, including the costs of rehabilitation and therapy.
