Church collects donations for children involved in East Jonesboro shooting

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Members of a Region 8 church said they are collecting donations to help the victims of the shootings in East Jonesboro.

Christina Carl is a representative for the First United Methodist Church and said they have been collecting the donations at the Walmart on Parker Road.

Carl told Region 8 News they're hoping they can collect donations for Angel Islas and Ryan Davila.

"This is a great opportunity for community service for us all to come together and show these kids that we really care and that everything will be okay," said Carl.

"I don't want people to forget about it and I feel like these kids need urgent attention."

Carl said they plan to be out there again on Thursday and Sunday.
