Synagogue to raise money for children orphaned by car accident

A nine-year-old Texas boy tragically became the head of his household when his parents were killed in a fatal car accident. The boy has two siblings, an eight-year-old brother, and a younger sister, only six years old. The children will be adopted by their aunt and uncle.
The children were orphaned over Fourth of July weekend when their parents were killed in a wreck on their way home from a family vacation in Colorado. The children were also injured in the car accident. The boys are being treated for spinal injuries, and the little girl suffered a broken arm and a broken ankle.
The Congregation Gesher L’Torah on Kimball Bridge Road in Alpharetta, Georgia, will hold a bake sale on August 21 to raise money for the children’s trust fund. Members of the congregation feel great sympathy for the children having lost their parents, and they want to help.
The congregation has no shortage of volunteers. Plenty of people have already said they plan on donating time, money and baked goods to the sale. The family also has a Facebook page for donations, and friends and family are holding their own fundraisers to benefit the three children.
“We cannot wait to get started and raise lots of money for thie Berry family,” reads the information on the Facebook page. “Volunteers for baking and helping out are flooding my email inbox, so we expect to have a big turnout.”
Proceeds from the fundraisers will be held in trust for the children to help provide for their current and future financial needs and to offset the costs of their medical care and their parents’ final expenses. No word is available on whether the children’s guardians are considering bringing a wrongful death action with a naples personal injury firm on their behalf.
