I received an email from a reader, Matthew Allen, that kind of breaks my heart. He asked me to share it with y’all, so here it is:
This may be too far off the radar for you to consider, but I want to ask anyway. A family friend of mine (actually, his son, Zac Hendrix) is a recent UGA grad and mentored a young, at risk child in Athena while he was there. The child lived in a mobile home park, and last night his home burned, killing his mother, grandmother, and sister. He is now alone and needs help.
Zac is asking for donations for the little boy. I’m wondering if you could make a short post on the blog about it. If not, I understand.
Here is an article about the fire: https://www.onlineathens.com/story/news/2021/01/27/house-fire-athens-kills-three-boy-escapes-flames/4276946001/
>Here is the GoFundMe: https://gofund.me/57f3a1e9Many thanks.
Please, do what you can to help. Thanks, folks.
