A community fundraiser will be held Thursday evening to collect money for the funeral of a Paulding County 12-year-old boy.

Shayaa Yusef Forbes, 32, was charged with felony murder and two counts of child cruelty in the death of his son, Eric.

An autopsy revealed Eric was a victim of severe child abuse.

Crossroads Neighborhood Grille near Dallas is hosting the fundraiser.

Cedarcest Pizza Shack is also donating a portion of its proceeds to the same cause.

If you want to contribute to the Eric Forbes Memorial Fund, you may do so at any Wells Fargo bank.
