Work-re­lated in­jury puts Eas­ton man in tough po­si­tion

Sunday Star - - FRONT PAGE -

Eli is a sin­gle fa­ther liv­ing in Eas­ton with his 10-yearold son Lin­coln and his 6-year-old daugh­ter Zoey. Af­ter a work-re­lated in­jury that has bound him to a wheel­chair, Eli is hav­ing a hard time re­cov­er­ing. Some of his fam­ily has been try­ing to help him through his daily rou­tine.

He is re­cov­er­ing slowly from the in­jury, which means he will not be able to re­turn to work un­til af­ter the new year. Eli, Lin­coln and Zoey will have to sur­vive on sav­ings un­til then.

Lin­coln and Zoey have been help­ing with re­spon­si­bil­i­ties around the house like tak­ing out the trash, even cook­ing small meals — but Eli feels bad. With the bills adding up quickly, Eli is ask­ing the com­mu­nity for help so he doesn’t let his chil­dren and fam­ily down.
