GOLD HILL ó A local church has started a fund drive for an eastern Rowan County teen critically injured in a car accident on Christmas Day.
Adam Muncy, 16, a sophomore at East Rowan High School and Rockwell resident, was critically injured in an accident on Faith Road. He was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte where he remains in fair condition.
Members of Gold Hill United Methodist Church have started a fund drive to help offset the medical bills Muncy’s family is facing.
Cathy Perry, a member of the church, said her daughter, Sara, is a good friend to Muncy.
Perry said members of Gold Hill Methodist have been praying for Muncy since the day of the accident.
“He’s been on our prayer list all this time,” Perry said. “We just felt we wanted to do all we can.”
Perry said Muncy’s mother, Debbie, has been at the hospital almost continuously since the accident. His father, David, is a long-distance truck driver and had to return to work, Perry said.
Friends are keeping updated on Muncy’s condition through the Web site, where family members post updates and friends comment.
“We are thankful for God’s mercy and care to Adam so far,” the family wrote on the Web site. “He is slowly progressing. Thanks for keeping up with Adam on this site. It has amazed us how many people care.”
