Good Samaritan Needs Help

A good Samaritan stopped to help a stranger – and landed in the hospital. Now his family needs help raising the funds to pay for his care.

Nearly two weeks ago, Adam Hall stopped to help a woman who was stuck with an immobilized vehicle on the side of the road. While he was under the van, the jack broke and he was crushed – suffering a collapsed lung and broken ribs.

Financial concerns are twofold. First, there are the mounting medical expenses. And, with Adam in the hospital, his family of four is without an income. He is the father of two small daughters – age five and 18 months.

If you can help, please visit the link below to make a financial contribution.

For anyone who wants to help provide for this family’s Christmas with presents for the girls, we will be happy to collect those at RCNN headquarters and get them to the family. Thank you always for the generosity you show to those in need. RCNN
