Support has been pouring in for Justin Moore, the little boy badly burned in a gasoline accident in Hazel Green.

Justin's principal at Hazel Green Elementary, Shelia Jones, said she has been struck by the kindness of the community following the accident.

"We had several awesome acts of kindness happen," Jones said. "Some parents opened an account for the family at Redstone Federal Credit Union and so many people have reached out to help."

Tuesday, a School Resource Officer from Fort Payne, Jordan Kelley, came by the school to pick up gifts and cards Hazel Green faculty and students made for Justin. Kelley will hand deliver those gifts while visiting family in Cincinnati, where the boy was flown for treatment.

Kelley has never even met Justin but knew he wanted to do something.

"The thought of just being able to help him in some way and his family just sort of stuck with me," Kelley said.

Justin's teacher, Carolyn Charnock, was touched by the support of a stranger.

"We just want to thank him so much from the bottom of our hearts," Charnock said.

Justin remains in critical condition at Shriner's Hospital in Cincinnati.
