TROY, Ohio (WDTN) – Culver’s in Troy hosted a fundraiser for the Troy family devastated by a carbon monoxide leak in their home.
20% of all proceeds will go to the Bishop family. The owner says they even had to extend the hours of the fundraiser because of all the community interest.
Last week, the four children were found unresponsive in a home on Elm Street. Two sisters and another teen died. An 8-year-old boy remains hospitalized.C
A close family member used to work for Culver’s. Owner Derek Potts say he feels like an extended family member, so he wanted to help out in any way he could.
“When we heard the news, it’s like, let’s use whatever resources we have and pull together from the community. The community has been so wonderful to really support that as well,” said Potts. “So we’re using what ever support we’ve got from the community to really bring them into the restaurant.”
8-year-old Jahari’s little league football team attended and a photo was donated for the team to stop by and sign for their teammate.
The restaurant had a constant line outside of the door of people wanting to show support and that’s something people that knew them say they would appreciate.
“As they’re looking down on us they would really appreciate how many people came out to support them,” said Monica Pena who knew all four of the children.
