Town of Union, NY (WBNG Binghamton) In a family's time of need, hundreds headed to Homer Brink Elementary to remember Matthew Craig, 6, who passed away late last month.
It has been a tough year for the Craig’s, little Matthew was battling cerebral palsy and hydroplastic left heart syndrome and his mother is battling cancer.
On Monday, Matthew's artwork hung on the walls during a dinner benefit that was originally set up to raise money for him.
Now, the proceeds will go to his mother.
His teacher said she will remember a lot about Matthew, especially his laugh. She also said she wished he was there.
"I think Matthew would be amazed, by the support, by the number of people that have come out from Endwell, Maine and our community," said Special Education teacher Stacy Spaulding.
A fund has also been set up at the M&T Bank in Endwell where checks can be made to the "Craig Family Benefit Fund."
