Injured Firefighter Needs Our Help

DFD_logoOne of the best things about our beloved neighborhood is that we band together to help one another. As you probably heard in the media, a Dallas firefighter was severely injured on May 3rd. He is a resident of our neighborhood and his nearby neighbors are asking our support in this time of need. Please read the message below and help in any way you can.

Some of you may have heard about a Dallas Fire Fighter who got injured last Saturday May 3rd fighting a fire. What you may not know is that he is a Lower Greenville Resident and neighbor of ours. Jeff Patterson suffered 3rd degree burns to 30% of his body.  He is still listed in critical condition and is currently at Parkland Hospital’s Burn trauma unit which is reputed to be the best in the country.

Tina and Jeff have two children, ages 5 and 2 years old and Jeff’s healing and recovery is going to be a very long and arduous process. We have set up a fund on his behalf (information listed below) and I am asking you all to please rally around our friends and neighbor during this life altering process.

In an effort to help the family, a CareCalendar has been set up for meal deliveries and donation information. You are welcome to share this link with anyone we may have left off.
