GoFundMe Raising Money For Family Of Crash Victims

A GoFundMe has been launched to help the family of two victims in a fatal crash in Sodus Township this week. 42-year-old Robert Keys of Niles and 13-year-old Sylas Keys of St. Joseph were killed in the crash on Monday after their vehicle lost control on the wet surface of Sodus Parkway west of Watson Road. They were father and son. A passenger in the vehicle, 8-year-old Elliot Keys, suffered critical injuries. He is the son of Robert Keys and brother to Sylas. The GoFundMe launched to help Elliot and his family says he was flown by care flight from the hospital in St. Joseph to Kalamazoo after surgery on Monday night. He then had surgery while at Bronson in Kalamazoo in the early morning hours on Tuesday, and was to be transferred for more surgery in Ann Arbor on Wednesday. It says Elliot’s mother Ashley will have many needs as she navigates this difficult terrain with her son. It says the campaign is “intended to help Ashley financially but it is also a tangible way for her to see the love and support of her community during a time when it would be easy to feel lost, afraid and alone.” As of Friday afternoon, the GoFundMe had raised more than $63,000.

Charles City Depot Move Seeks Additional Funding

Efforts to relocate the historic Milwaukee Railroad Depot in Charles City are in need of additional funding. In a Facebook post, American Passenger Train History Museum, which is coordinating the project, says a GoFundMe account has been established to help cover some additional costs. The museum was forced to find a new contractor to build a new foundation for the 1912 building’s new home about two blocks south of its present location on North Grand Avenue, after the original contractor backed out less than a week before they were to begin pouring concrete and organizers had to find a replacement. In late August, Quality Concrete of Riceville took over building the new foundation, which has since been poured and is in the process of drying and curing in advance of the relocation.
