FCSO established this Charity Fund in July 2018 after a prescribed burn a month earlier in Eastpoint got out of control. The fire devastated everything in its path, burnt down 36 homes, and burned over 800 acres. The Sheriff’s Office saw an immediate need in the community, so they opened a GoFundMe account and later transitioned it into a nonprofit organization. In total, FCSO said they have spent over $750,000 in their county for those in need.
