DESOTO, Mo. (KSDK) – The community is pulling together to help the family of a Festus man who died while volunteering.
A fundraiser for Mike Akers' family took place Saturday night at Emmanuel Baptist Church.
Akers and his son – Christopher – were making a delivery to a food pantry last month when their U-Haul hit a tree and caught fire.
Christopher Akers is still recovering.
The benefit will last until 8 p.m.
