The DeKalb County Police Department is rallying around a fellow officer who is going through a tough time.

Officer Marty Williams, who has six children, lost his home in a March 1 house fire. He’s been living in a hotel with his family ever since.

His wife passed away two years ago not long after giving birth to their last child, the Police Department said.

“South Precinct, along with Mix’d Up Burgers, is hosting a fundraiser Friday, March 16, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the precinct parking lot, 2842 H.F. Shepherd Drive, Decatur, GA.,” the Police Department said in a press release. “Hamburgers, french fries and other food items will be sold, as well as beverages. Mix’d Up Burgers is donating twenty percent of all sales to the Williams family. Those interested in donating clothing to the Williams family are welcome to drop all items off at South Precinct. There are five girls; ages three, four, seven nine and eleven and one four-year-old boy. Any cash or clothing donations will be forwarded to Officer Williams to help with his family’s immediate needs. This event is open to the public.”
