Hyland has had $8000 donated from 200 people! That’s an average of $40 a donation! They’re beyond blessed!!! They had 23k worth of gear stolen. If they can raise between 10-12k in donations, they will be well on their way to recovery. Thank you SO much for giving. This is beyond anything they could have asked for!!! See the link at the end of this article to contribute.

Thanks Fox 9 News for covering this story:
