ANDREWS — The Andrews community came together to help a seven-year-old boy who was hit by a car as he was riding a bike.
A hamburger cookout was held at the Andrews Baseball and Softball Complex, which saw hundreds of people come and buy burgers for a good cause.
The boy was injured in a hit-and-run crash on March 26 before being transported to Lubbock for treatment.
Organizers tell CBS 7 that more than 300 burgers were served, with the money raised going to help with medical expenses.
“As far as this, thanks very much to the people who donated, extremely thanks on behalf of the Kelley family. This was 100% given from the community, the glove too. Everybody is pitching in, part of the baseball family,” said Joe Barnes, the Andrews Stix Coach.
According to organizers more than $2,100 has been raised for the family so far.
