Flatwood Boys Stay Strong

On Sunday evening of March 15th, Blake and Tyler tragically lost both of their parents in an unprovoked shooting while inside their home. Blake who is sixteen and is in the eleventh grade. Tyler is fourteen and has just entered the ninth grade.

I am the first cousin of Blake and Tyler and my father, Chad Childress is the uncle of the two boys. We are all extremely devastated as a family and would like to come together and raise money to support these boys in this tragic event.

These proceeds will benefit the future educational needs of Blake and Tyler and help keep them involved in their activities. These donations will go towards any future schooling, such as college or any future educational plans they may have. Any donation will help these boys and their long and difficult journey ahead of them. As a family, we will miss them dearly and love them very much.

Thank you for your support.
