Chick-fil-A in Waynesboro does a lot of fundraisers like this. Seems like maybe once a month they donate part of their sales to a family in need or some other worthy cause. They really do give a lot back to the community!

Why do I have to mention his name? Why not just donate 20% of all sales to the family?

That is a fine act to support a single family.

Does Chickfila lobby against Affordable Care Act that support hundreds of thousands of American families to have health care?

Does Chickfila lobby for safe housing funding to ensure that all Americans live in safe housing (without dangers in the home such as fire)?

Does Chickfila support excellent education in every community, that helps ensure educated employees, and support educational pursuits of employees so that employees can graduate (high school, college) in order to attain better jobs?

etc

Acts of kindness to individuals and individual families are excellent.

Jesus showed that with each act of healing, each compassionate word spoken, each compassionate gesture.

Jesus also said "whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these". These greater things - service to the poor, the sick, the imprisoned, the weak, the 'strangers in the land', acts of love for all who need love - are things that we can attain together.

If we do not also seek to do the 'greater things' we fail Jesus who asked us to do 'greater things' together.

Wonderful act of caring. Let's all have Chick-Fil-A for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even if you don't like it, or want it, buy it or just stop by and drop off a few bucks. Money isn't the "thing" here, as no amount can truly ease the pain of mourning this family will inevitably endure, it is the display of compassion and caring that will lift their spirits some small amount to help them make each passing day go by with just a bit more comfort. I'm driving 20 miles out of my way to contribute, please do what you can and bring your friends. Maybe, if you don't want to eat all that chicken yourself, bring the pastor of your church, or representative of the local Salvation Army or shelter, and buy the meals for them. It'll do double good, and help you stick to the diet you're on. Heck, that's triple good!

Just donate money directly to the family.

Good suggestions, especially for people like me who very seldom eats out. I was also thinking that I would buy Chick-fil-A gift cards and give them to the Gibson family. Until the family is back in a home, I imagine that the are eating out a lot, which gets expensive.

I've donated money directly to the family, but this showing of support and caring from business and the community benefits us all.

Just my thoughts, but by "mentioning his name" makes it a personal decision on your part to actively participate to raise money for the family. If Chick-fil-A just donates 20% of all sales, it would just look like the company was doing all the giving, and doing it for the glory they receive.

Like another poster stated--it more than about the money. It's about community spirit, support and caring, besides supplying monetary needs.

If you really feared (respected) God, you would use a capital "G" in front of his name.

I find ironic that the right wing is composed primarily by religious zealots but when push comes to shuv its all about "me" with them. It would seem religion is a safe place for hypocrites to dwell and offers a quick fix for all those with a guilty conscience.

Awesome. I am currently unemployed and in a tight budget. But I am planning on driving to the Waynesboro Chic-Fil-A tomorrow just to support this effort. Kudos to them for doing this.

RIP, Little Man.

There may of been an actual person who's name was Jesus and he may of said some inspiring things, but as to what he actually said who knows. The bible has been rewritten and interpreted from so many languages, ain't no tellin what his original words were. Of course King James picked and chose what suited himself, whats left is suspect. For all we know Jesus might have said "hey, be nice or I'll kick your arse". But to be real, the Bible has been a tool throughout history to control the unwashed masses and a means to pick their pockets with the threat of the boogyman if you don't. If you believe, fine. Gimme a dolla.

Excuse me, but a few of you seem to have the wrong article to which you are posting nasty comments. This article is not about Christians, Jesus, God or Obama or Romney and especially not King James.

This article is about a family losing all their possessions to a fire, but more important, they lost a precious child. The article is about a business and the community coming together to help raise money to replace possessions and maybe help bury Dustyn, but also to support and comfort the family. They can replace their "stuff" but they can't replace their son and brother.

At times like this we should all come together as decent human beings and not push hateful agendas.

Thank you. I will add a plea to the moderators to abide by their Terms of Service rules and remove all inappropriate posts, which is all that do not pertain to this fundraiser and the Gibson family who suffered such a great loss.

Thanks, but as you can see, the only post that was deleted is the one that mentioned a homosexual. NBC29 doesn't care as long as the trolls are bashing decent people and companies. They have no shame and they do not care about families as long as they are getting clicks to satisfy their advertisers. I will be contacting advertisers to let them know how I feel.
