I am sure you have heard and seen by now of the wreck involving Social Circle Fire Dept Engine 6.  Many of us know the guys and know that they are dang good firemen and a great friend to have.  With that being said lets see if we can help them out as they will probably be out of work for a bit especially the driver.  It isn't much, but lets see if we can gather up some donations and get them and their family two gift cards for groceries.  It can help since we all know money is tight and especially if on limited pay from short term disability or other medical leave.  If you can donate great, if not it is all good and no pressure.  Just wanted to let them and their families know we all have their back and the fire dept Brotherhood is alive and strong.

Good morning all,
I just wanted to send a final update from me with this GoFundMe. As of yesterday evening 2/4/19 all of the funds have been electronically transferred to the injured firefighter and his family. I no longer have any access or control over the funds. I have attached a screenshot of the confirmation I received from GoFundMe showing the money access is transferred and the family has control of it. I covered over personal information. I have also confirmed this with one of the chiefs at Social Circle Fire Department as to making sure the family did get the information and funds without issue. He also has the screenshots to ensure everything was handled properly on my end.
I just want to take a second and say thank you to everyone who has donated. This was just a simple idea to help them with a little money to buy groceries while he is recovering and then this GoFundMe thing took off and all I can say is WOW! You all are amazing people and it is truly humbling to see so many donate to the injured firefighter and his family. I would have never imagined this amount of funds to be raised, but you all are amazing. I can't thank you all enough. I do have one more favor to ask, I do know he is still in the hospital and I ask you all keep praying for him and his family.
Thanks again,
Simon McCullough

Wow! You all are amazing, this is going great. Let's keep this going and let's flood them with assistance.
I have been asked when this GoFundMe will end, I think we run it to Friday of this week and that way we can go and deliver the grocery card and the remaining funds to the family Friday or Saturday at the latest. As this draws to an end I will keep everyone updated here and on my Facebook page as to total funds raised and show receipts from the cards so everyone knows it all went to the families affected. Thanks again for the outpouring of donations and shares to get this to where it is already. I ask for a little more help in spreading the word just a little longer and lets finish strong.

Thanks everyone for the quick outpouring of help towards this. With this going so well we will add on to the goal and let's shoot for the moon. We know for sure that the driver will be out of work for a while due to his injuries. Fortunately the officer on the truck is doing well and will be back to work very quickly. With speaking with a Chief from Social Circle he said that proceeds will go directly to the driver as Lester said to send it all to the other guy. Let's keep the amount growing way above and beyond the "goal" and we will do more than a grocery card and help with other expenses and things that come up during this time while the driver is in the hospital. Looks as if it may be a lengthy road to recovery.
