Donation Jar Stolen from Lubbock Convenience Store

A Lubbock family needs your help after their donation jar was stolen from a Lubbock convenience store.

Six-month-old Devin Martreon Washington passed away this week. He had been diagnosed with Down's Syndrome and congestive heart failure. 

His family solicited donations for medical and funeral expenses by placing a jar at a Lubbock convenience store. Store employees say that jar was nearly full of donations in just a matter of hours until a thief ran off with the jar.

Lubbock Police are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, if you would like to make a donation to the "Devin Martreon Washington Memorial Fund," you can do so at any branch of the WesTex Federal Credit Union, or in care of Washington's grandfather, Edward Cobbs, at Alliance Federal Credit Union.
