Community rallies around family of boy, 10, injured in car accident
Tricia Adams of Nashua and others set up the fund and through social networking have collected amounts ranging from $10 to $100. The goal is to raise $5,000 for the family. As of Thursday night, the group had raised more than $2,900. To donate, visit www.gofundme.com/4ua2v0.
Adams and Alex's mother, Mandi, are part of a mom's group called BAM, and, Adams said, the members are always there for each other.
"Alex has a very long road of recovery. His parents will continue to have long nights and a lot of those will be sleepless nights. Please help us raise some funds to lessen some of the worry. Any little bit will help, no donation is too small," Adams said.
• A donation jar will be set up at the Goffstown Pumpkin Regatta at the Common on Main Street to help the family.
• Bake sale on Saturday, Oct. 19, at Gill Stadium in Manchester, from 8 a.m. to noon.
• On Sunday, Nov. 10, from 5 to 9 p.m., Leda Lanes, at 340 Amherst St., Nashua. Bowlers pay $10, which includes pizza and soda, and proceeds go to the Reed family.• In addition, people can visit www.facebook.com and search Support for Alex, where consultants from Lia Sophia and Avon will donate a portion of their proceeds.
The accident tied up traffic, but the area is usually congested at that time of day with local businesses and commuters "and the sun is setting earlier," he said.
Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to call Goffstown police at 497-4858.
