Chelsea's Burgers and Brew helps two Abilene families dealing with tragic losses

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB) -  It goes without saying that nobody ever hopes for their family to experience a loss, but it seems that the bad always brings good along with it. One more example of that throughout the week at Chelsea's Burgers and Brew, as two families get a helping hand.

This week, Chelsea's has two special hamburgers on the menu. A pair of classic cheeseburgers with fries and a drink - the Hardy Burger, and the Christian burger. Each costs $12, with $5 of that going to the respective family.

Liam Hardy and Jaevion Christian were killed in two separate accidents recently. Liam was killed in the Warwick apartment fire, and Jaevion in a rollover accident on Interstate 20. But now, both families are getting a helping hand.

Liam's uncle, Benjamin Reed, is touched, saying, ".There's another family out there that's dealing with tragedy as well, so he's helping both of us. And it's just amazing, the support that we've gotten from this community. It's unbelievable. It blows my mind. There's just no words to express the gratitude that we have for everybody who's been doing this."

The support means quite a bit to both families. Reed adds, "It's amazing that somebody would do this and be there for our family in this time. The fact that they're doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, and everything else is just... Words can't describe it. The feeling is... It makes me happy and glad that there's people out here, and there's the love out here, for families in need."
 

The special meals will be on sale this week. And if hamburgers aren't right for you, monetary donations are being taken at Chelsea's as well.
