Fundraiser held for seriously injured detailer

FALLSTON, MD — After almost two tons of debris fell on Keith Mathews, his family and friends held a carwash to help with the mounting medical bills.

FALLSTON, MD — Keith Mathews suffered serious injuries when more than 3,500 lbs. of debris fell on him inside his detail shop during a storm, reported.

The Aug. 4 story stated that Mathews is still recovering from the accident both physically and financially. His detail shop was completely demolished, and he has racked up large bills for surgery and rehabilitation costs.

To help Mathews raise money, his family and friends held a carwash fundraiser last weekend at the location where his shop was previously located.

Also, donations could be made to his recovery fund at any BBT Bank location, and the story said [email protected] could be emailed for more details.
