Maumelle Local 4453 Raising Funds for Member's Child that was burned
Posted On: Nov 02, 2017
Local 4453 Vice President Destin Weaver has experinced a family tragedy. His seven year old son, Ronald, suffered burns -- many 3rd degree -- to nearly 40% of his body during an accident near a campfire last Friday. Ronald faces a long road to recovery and the Weaver family will have many challenges along the way.
Destin is a single-parent and has sole custody of four children including Ronald and has been a fixture at Arkansas Children's Hospital since the accident. He is taking sick leave from the fire department, but this will also keep him from working his side job, which is a significant source of income for his family. Our local is trying provide relief to some of these financial challenges.
If possible, we would love if you were able to distribute this information to the 14th District e-mailing list. We are also open to any other opportunities you know of that would help lighten the load for the Weaver family so they can focus on Ronald's treatment and recovery.
