It is with a heavy heart I want to inform you that long time employee, Jason Derryberry and his family, lost everything they own in a house fire over the weekend.
Jason has worked with the city for over 16 years in both the Sewer and Public Works Departments. He is a dedicated and loyal employee and is one of those guys what would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. I asked Jason if he needed anything the day after the fire and he simply said, "My wife, two boys and dog are all safe. That is all I want and need."
I ask that our residents consider making a gift to help the Derryberry family get back on their feet. They will have both immediate and long-term needs. You can make a tax-deductible donation to The City of Lookout Mountain, GA. Please indicate that you want to give to the Derryberry Family Fund. You may drop off a donation at our temporary City Hall location at the Methodist Church during office hours, or place the contribution in the Payment Drop Box which is also located at our temporary offices. You may also mail a check to:
City of Lookout Mountain, GA
1214 Lula Lake Road
Lookout Mountain, GA 30750
For those who would prefer an electronic option, the City has also created a GoFundMe page, which may be accessed by clicking the red button below, or copy and pasting the link into your web browser.
Thank you in advance for considering a gift to help the Derryberry family. Also, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they begin putting their life back together.
