The Newnan Police Department is asking anyone who still wants to help the Bonner family in Newnan who lost 6 members to a devastating early morning house fire on Macedonia Road to make donations in the form of gift cards.

According to a Facebook post by the police department, the family has received an abundance of certain items.

The Newnan Times-Herald reports that the family's immediate needs have been fulfilled not just once, but 5 times over, according to a family friend.
