Car wash to benefit burn victim
Trenten Viney’s parents need about $500 a month to stay in California with their 21-month-old son, who was burned in a fire in Fort Collins last week.
They do not know how long their son will be in the Shriner’s Hospital in Sacramento.
And while they are there, neither Josh nor Alex Viney is bringing in an income.
To help, friends will hold a car wash 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Today at Jax Outdoor Gear, 950 E. Eisenhower Blvd., Loveland.
Volunteers will wash vehicles for $5 a pop, with all proceeds going to the Viney family. Motorists are welcome to donate more, added family friend Amber Kaiser.
The Shriner’s Hospital is covering Trenten’s medical care, and his parents are staying at the Ronald McDonald House, which costs $20 a day, Kaiser said.
A fund to help the Vineys also has been set up at Home State Bank. Residents can send checks, payable to the bank and marked for the Trenten Viney Fund, to any Home State Bank in Loveland or Fort Collins.
