Community Raises Money for Father Arrested for Leaving Kids Home Alone So He Could Work

Sometimes parents do what they have to do, but sometimes that isn’t always in the best interest of their children and they find themselves in a lot of trouble.

One North Carolina father of five has found himself behind bars after he left his kids home alone so he could go to work.

The man, who told the court his wife was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer, explained that he needed to work to help pay for mounting medical bills.

Now his community is supporting him and helping raise funds for his children after a complete stranger bailed him out of jail so he could keep his job.
