Worth Knowing: How to help the little boy who lost his dad on December 6

Submitted a month ago

There was a horrible accident on I-91 on December 6. An 89-year old resident of White River Junction drove the wrong way on the interstate causing a 3-vehicle crash that took his life and that of another motorist, Patrick Covey. The individual in the 3rd car suffered minor injuries.

Patrick Covey was the father of seven-year old Noah James Covey. Now Noah's grandmother has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to support him and to plan for his future. The purpose of the campaign is to seed a college fund, for every day expenses and for some small extras for Noah and his mother during holidays like Christmas.

His grandmother told me that she's been overwhelmed by the kindness of members of the Upper Valley since the accident. She has no fund-raising goal in mind and just hopes that some community members will chip in.
