SPD taking donations after officer lost everything in house fire


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – On April 1st, 2019, Sylacauga Police Department officer Adam Grantham  was on duty when he received notification that his house was on fire.

Within minutes, the house was fully involved and flames were seen through the roof. Despite the fire department’s best efforts, Officer Grantham and his wife watched their home, which housed their family of four, burn to the ground along with all of their belongings except for what they had on them.

Everything material was a total loss, but the family of four was safe. The home was paid in full and did not currently have any insurance on the property. Now, Officer Grantham and his family must shoulder the burden of the total costs to rebuild their lives unless we come together to help.

If you would like to donate to Officer Grantham and his family, SPD has a few opportunities available to give. There is a local account at Heritage South Credit Union in Sylacauga where donations can be made by asking to deposit into the account for “Donations for Adam Grantham” during their regularly scheduled business hours. SPD is also accepting donations locally at the Sylacauga Police Department Records Office during regularly scheduled business hours for items or monetary donations in person. Lastly, there is a verified “GoFundMe” account set up for the family. Click here to donate.

All donations of any kind are appreciated and all monies go to Officer Grantham and his family during this difficult time of rebuilding.
