ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Albany Police Department held a benefit breakfast Friday morning to raise money for a local family that lost a child in a deadly house fire.

Dozens of law enforcement officers and officials from county and city agencies turned out for the breakfast. All of the proceeds earned will go to the family of Jeremiah Fenn, an MCLB police officer, whose three year old son died one week after a flash fire at the family's Albany home.

With an infant daughter still in a burn center, organizers of the breakfast say the money earned will help the Fenn's as they deal with a number of expenses.

"We decided to do this breakfast this morning in order to get more money that we can give to the Fenn family," said Asst. Albany Police Chief Wilma Griffin. "Anything and everything; money and prayers and support of the public would be appreciated by the Fenn family."

Jeremiah Fenn Junior was buried on Saturday. 1-year-old Ja'el Fenn remains at an Augusta burn center. Saturday beginning at 10 am, Dougherty County Police will hold a car wash fundraiser for the Fenn family at Flint River Harley Davidson.

Anyone interested in donating to the family can also visit SunTrust Bank and ask for the Faith Deliverance Church Fenn Family Fund.
