The six men involved in the fire that happened at Delek in Elderado, Arkansas, last month continue to receive support from the community, reported KTVE. The Delek Fund for Hope group hosted a fundraiser over the weekend to raise money for those burns victims and their families.
Liz Fairris, Senior Administrative Assistant at Delek, says the goal was to raise $12,000 but they well exceeded their expectations and raised $27,8000 for selling hats, t-shirts, and other items.
In addition to the event, Jeff Teague and Karl Malone donated $40,000 for the families. Smackover Motors has pledged $20,000 and one community church has donated $17,000. This doesn’t include the many other businesses and schools that have done fundraisers.
