McEachern High School has set up a fund for anyone who wants to contribute toward the funeral arrangements of football star Rajaan Bennett, who died on Thursday.
“We’re trying to help the family with funeral costs, clean up of the house, and numerous other expenses they have,” McEachern football coach Kyle Hockman told the AJC on Thursday.
“More than anything, we’re trying to help the family in this time of uncertainty. (Rajaan’s family) didn’t have a lot of possessions, and I know they could use some financial assistance with the funeral — you know, to do something nice to celebrate his life.”
“We’ve had some people within the McEachern community to step up and offer (financial) help. But we also wanted to provide information to others that may want to help, too.”
To donate, Hockman said send checks made out to the McEachern Endowment Fund with “Rajaan Bennett Memorial” written in the bottom left corner. McEachern High School’s address is 2400 New Macland Road, Powder Springs, GA 30127. For more information, please call 770-222-3710.
