Eat'n Together at Striplings

Sherrie Medlin, left, general manager of the Stripling's General Store in Brunswick, hands the most recent donation of nearly $400 to Eat'N Together nonprofit co-founder Alec Eaton, who is raising money to end alternative lunches in schools.

A dime here, 75 cents there. It adds up.

Thousands of students in Glynn County Schools are benefiting from these micro-donations made through a new partnership between Stripling’s General Store and the local nonprofit Eat’n Together.

Nineteen-year-old Trent Lehrkamp — who police say was left by three minors at the hospital emergency room covered in spray paint, barely breathing and with a mixture of drugs and alcohol in his system that nearly killed him — is out of the intensive care unit.

Cries for justice rang loudly down Parkwood Avenue on Monday where more than 200 people gathered to pray, show their support and, most of all, to call for arrests to be made in the incident that police say put Trent Lehrkamp in the hospital in critical condition and on a ventilator.

The father of a 19-year-old in critical condition in the Brunswick hospital told police his son “never returns home normal” when he goes to the house on St. Simons Island that is the subject of an investigation into an alleged hazing incident, according to a police incident report.
