Many people have been asking how they can show their support to the families of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, now I have an answer:
Three local firefighters have partnered with Suntrust Bank in an effort to support the families of Christopher Newsom, Channon Christian and other families of violent crimes in our area. The Newsom and Christian family members have missed countless hours of work, incurred travel expenses as well as other miscellaneous expenses in their pursuit of justice for their children. Our prayer is that this fund creates a clearer path towards healing for these families and our entire community be relieving some of their financial burden and empowering our community to truly support one another.
All tax-deductible donations will be accepted at any Suntrust Bank location during the month of September 2009 or via Pay Pal on this website. The total amount of donations will be dispersed to the Newsom and Christian families with a portion going to the East Tennessee Victims Rights Task Force in their names.
Please keep these families in your prayers as jury selection is underway for the trial of Lemaricus Davidson (one of several suspects being tried in this case).
Thank you to the three firefighters who established this fund so that people across the globe can show their support to the Newsoms and the Christians.
