East Point firefighter helps out his home country

A firefighter in East Point is collecting donations of clothes and shoes to send back to his home country of Belize.

Krishna Craig said he has already shipped 200 pounds of donated items and plans to send more.

Craig Said it all started when he went to an area community yard sale.

He said he noticed how cheap he could get gently used items and felt like he could do something good.

Firefighter Craig said he grew up in Belize and a lot of the people he is helping still remember him from childhood.

He will be delivering the next shipment of donations in person.

He leaves for Belize next week.
