'Operation Crain' gives Christmas to family in Milton fire

December 11, 2013
MILTON, Ga. — On Nov. 22, a Milton family lost their home after a fire gutted it.

The Milton Fire Department was called to the White Columns Court home of the family of nine – two adults and seven children – about 6:40 a.m. The mother and her 3-year-old child were forced to jump out of the second-story window to escape the flames. Both were taken to Grady Hospital for their injuries. The other family members escaped unharmed.

Now, members of the community want to help bring Christmas to the Crain family.

Dubbed "Operation Crain," Home Sweet Homeschool, 41 Church Street, will be collecting toys and other items for the family.

"We would like to ask the community to come together and help in donating items and goods for the Crain family during their difficult time in the Christmas season," said Ann Blevins in a flier circulated throughout the community.

The children's ages and genders are as follows:

There are four boys. Their ages are 16, 12 and (twins) 7.

The family's three girls are aged 14, 10 and 3.

Donations can be dropped off at 41 Church Street on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Items will be delivered to the Crain family the week of Christmas.

The family has also received help from the community to refurnish their homes as well as photographers donating time to rebuild the family's photographs. A Facebook page entitled Crain Family Updates has been created with the latest information.

Call 678-339-2777 for more information.
