Community comes together to help family who lost three loved ones

COLUMBUS, Ga. – The family who lost three loved ones in a car wreck this weekend is getting a little help from friends and family.

Dozens of volunteers held a car wash to raise money for the family.

All of the people out here at Fairbanks Motors are volunteers helping to raise money for this family who has to pay to bury three of their loved ones.

Family friend James Bond says, “To have three homecomings all at once – it’s tough to process at once let alone be financially ready for.”

Dozens of friends and family are raising money.

Some waved signs encouraging people to get their cars washed.

Others rolled up their sleeves and washed the vehicles.

Maurice “Big Show” Jordan with the Presidents Motorcycle Club volunteered to wash cars, “We are family with him and we wanted to come out and do as much as we can.”

Trey Crawford – who is a member of the Motorcycle Club – Plans to bury his family members Saturday – they are 35-year-old Nikia Wilson, 33-year-old Kayla Wilson, and Kayla’s 6 year old daughter (dah-nigh-la) Denyla Biggers.

All three died in a car crash Friday evening on Interstate-85.

Two other family members remain in the hosptial.

Family friend Kimi Rawls says, “Anybody could be in this situation. So I gave because I gave from my heart. I gave what I could.”

Morgit Wilson found about the car wash on Facebook and wanted to help.

“We support our friends in the motorcycle club. We’ve got to stick together.”

Club members rally to support the family during this tragedy.

“We are family with him and we wanted to come out and do as much as we can.”

Bond says, “For us to come in and do as much as we can and take as much burden as we can off the family – I don’t know how much it means to them but it means a lot to us to give back in that way.”

The car wash continues continues again Thursday.
