Chick-Fil-A to Host Fund Raiser for Victims of Plane Crash

December 17, 2014

The Chick-Fil-A in Germantown on Air Park Drive will donate a portion of all sales on Monday, Dec. 22 to benefit Ken Gemmell and his young daughter Arabelle, who lost their mother and two brothers, as well as their Gaithersburg home when a plane crashed into their house on Monday, Dec. 8.

   Two other homes, adjacent to the crash site, caused the displacement of two other families. “Chick-fil-A in Germantown, would like to help all three families at this very sad time filled with grief and loss. Please come out and support this effort, knowing that you will also be lending your support to the victims of this horrible tragedy. ” said the restaurant’s Facebook page.

   Marie Gemmell and her sons, Cole Gemmell, and Devon Gemmell, were all killed in their house in the 19700 block of Drop Forge Lane, authorities said. Montgomery County Police say they died of smoke inhalation.

   A twin-engine 10-passenger plane crashed Monday near houses on Drop Forge Lane killing three people in the plane, as well as the Gemmell family. The crash site is less than a mile from the Montgomery County Airpark.

   Gemmell’s husband, Kenneth, was at work, and their 5-year-old daughter, Arabelle, was at school at the time of the crash.

   There is also an online fund raiser to help the family, to donate to the gofundme.com effort, visit the Gemmell family page here.

   In addition to the online fundraiser, Kid’sTown Learning Center at 18815 Waring Station Road in Germantown was also accepting donations for the family. Donations could include size 8 girls’ clothing, size 2 girls’ shoes, toys and school supplies, as well as men’s size large shirts, pants size 36×30; shoes size 10. Gift cards are also being requested from Target, Walmart, quick serve restaurants, coffee shops, gas stations, grocery stores and drug stores.
