Debrodie Honored in Holts Summit

A foundation started to honor the late Carl Debrodie is now up and going.

Debrodie was found in a storage shed last year encased in concrete.

His guardian mother Mary Martin started a foundation in his memory called Carl’s Helping Hands.

Over the weekend a ceremony was held at a park in Holts Summit to raise money for the foundation which will help people who are in the mental health system that are similar to Debrodie.

Carl’s Helping Hands also has a GoFundMe account that accepts donations.
