“Home For Devin” Project Breaks Ground, Needs More Materials
KILLEN, Ala. (WHNT) – A group of volunteers gathered funds and resources to build a handicap accessible home for a young boy and his family in Killen.
Devin’s Robertson’s grandparents, Buddy and Anne, care for the 10-year-old with cerebral palsy.
The family’s trailer has been hauled away in the first step of a project funded by faith and donations.
“That just blesses your heart. And I know the people in our area will give,” said project coordinator, Barbara Austin.
Greg Cummings has lived next door to the Robertson’s for the past 45 years. It was his idea to get this project underway.
With major brain surgery scheduled, Cummings says he want to see his vision for the family, slowly become a reality.
“It means a lot, I won’t be able to do anything, but I hope to come and watch it, to be able to come home and watch it being built,” said Cummings.
A new account for monetary donations has been set up at the CB and S Bank and will open for donations on Thursday, September 6th. Until then, donations can still be made at any Bank Independent branch. Materials and volunteers are also needed. To donate or give help building the home, contact the Barbara Austin at 256-757-1158.
