On GoFundMe: 10-Year-old Hero is Homeless

Patch has partnered with GoFundMe to assist many local individuals and groups achieve their goals. 

In the Tucker area, there are many people in need of support. 

Beverly Thompson, a public education specialist with DeKalb Fire Rescue wrote on GoFundMe.com: 

I met Zna Gresham and her mom on Monday, Oct. 28, at an award ceremony hosted by the State of Georgia's Insurance Commissioner and Fire Marshal. During an apartment fire, 10-year-old Zna caught a one-month-old newborn from the second floor.

Since this fire her family has been homeless, living in a motel, not knowing if they will have enough money to pay the daily rate. After meeting this young lady I pledged to do all I can to help them get back on their feet. She's a true gem and deserves a fighting chance.

Thompson seeks to raise $20,000 to help the family get settled in a home.
