WHAT
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and this week is National Suicide Prevention Week. Jon Wolf, General Manager of On the Border restaurant in Bensalem tragically lost his daughter Abbey to suicide in November 2020. In an effort to spread awareness for mental health and suicide prevention, he approached On the Border’s corporate office with the concept of a giveback event benefiting NAMI. Abbey’s Bakery, created to honor the memory of Abbey Wolf, who loved to bake, will be selling Mason Jar Baking Mixes, accepting donations and sharing information on mental health resources. On the Border looks forward to donating 20% of food proceeds from the entire day of Thursday September 9th to NAMI, to recognize National Suicide Prevention Week. NAMI provides advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.

WHY
Abbey Wolf was vibrant and kind with an infectious laugh. Abbey was loved and admired by all that knew her. She was everyone’s friend. Abbey was compassionate, creative, driven, smart, funny and full of life. Abbey was affectionately known as our little Martha Stewart, a talented crafter and baker. Abbey was also quite the accomplished athlete. She swam, played basketball and was a focused and determined rising volleyball star – a proud member of her high school team and a TNT club player. Sadly, Abbey silently battled anxiety and depression, and we tragically lost her to suicide, at just 14 years old, on November 7th, 2020. Abbey may not have known how to reach out for help, but as her family, we are motivated to keep Abbey’s story alive and create a world that normalizes mental health conversations.
