Neighbors help family raise money to buy new home

Posted: Updated:
LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The effort by friends and relatives continue to help a Lee County single father of two whose home was destroyed during a storm nearly a month ago.

Dewayne Fogarty's mobile home split in half after a large pecan tree fell on it. Neighbors are knocking down the walls so they can sell what's left to a scrap yard.   

"Because what they need to do is haul the frame so they can get money from that from the scrap yard. That will maybe give them just enough so that they can start over, maybe find a new place, hopefully it will be enough to do that," said neighbor Sherrill Ferrari.       

The Fogartys are currently staying with a friend. Neighbors helped raise more than $100 by selling scrap metal, but they say the family needs much more. You can help the Fogarty family by contacting Dewayne Fogarty at 229-815-9350.
