Community comes together to help mother

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - More than a week ago two Pembroke children were killed in a tragic car accident. The family did not know how they were going to pay for the funeral service. Now they can rest a little easier after the community really came to their rescue.

Garden City Police Chief David Lyons met with the mother of the two children (8-year-old Decorious Fabin and his 15-year-old sister Kierra) and presented the family with a check for more than $11,000 to cover the cost of the funeral.

Garden City Police and firefighters raised much of the money with a boot drive on Highway 80 near Chatham Parkway this past weekend.
