On Friday July 22, the Gibson Area Ambulance Service (GAAS) braved the heat and humidity of the outdoors to host a benefit cookout for Alex Faulkner. The benefit cookout held outside of the Paxton IGA served approximately 170 pork chop meals and helped raised over $800 for Alex Faulkner and his medical cost. “We were very happy with the turn out to the benefit cookout. Alex truly has many supporters in Paxton and the surrounding area's. He also now has many supporters from GAH. I am proud to be part of an organization that continues to rally around community members in need,” said Adam Elder, GAAS EMS Operations Coordinator.
