Local businesses are coming together in the wake of a tragic wreck that killed four people.
Judy Little has helped organize a fundraiser to be held Sept. 1 in front of You Are So Special beauty salon from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. The yard sale will also include fish sandwiches and hot dogs for sale. These funds will be split between two of the survivors of the wreck, Rose Robinson and Cheryl Bailey.
“We’re asking the public to come out and support us,” Little said.
Little said the late Ryan Robinson, who worked at Rufus’ Barbershop, was in the process of opening his own establishment on Morven Road. Rose has worked as a cosmetologist at Awesome Touch and Bailey worked as a cosmetologist at Kim’s Kuts.
Little has asked all of the participating shops to include jars for people to donate money and she has a message for the public as well.
“If they have items, call one of the numbers to donate,” she said. She has made arrangements to store yard sale items until Sept. 1.
Ryan Robinson and his daughter, Latavia Robinson, as well as his grandchildren Latresha and Taleya Wall, died in a wreck on July 15 on N.C. 52 North between Wadesboro and Ansonville. Rose Robinson was also in the vehicle, which was struck by Bailey’s vehicle after Bailey crossed the center line, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.
