Donations sought for child's surgery
WORTHINGTON -- Hy-Vee in Worthington is having a fundraiser to support a local couple whose month-old boy, Chrisopher Michael Olson, was born with many complications.
One of the complications is a heart defect, and Christopher will be having surgery in August to hopefully correct it. All funds raised will be given to the family to help with expenses associated with the upcoming surgery.
People may show their support by letting volunteers pump their gas for tips at the Hy-Vee gas station from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Friday. Also, on Saturday, volunteers will be selling root beer floats from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the front of the store.
Donation jars are also located at many of the local businesses throughout Worthington.
