On Sunday November 28th, Malik Burkett from CFD Logistics was involved in a serious car accident in South Carolina while on the way back from visiting family. He was traveling with his sister and her two children. Malik and several members of the family sustained very serious injuries that will require multiple surgeries and extended hospitalizations. Malik is scheduled for surgery this morning to repair his fractured hip and arm. We are unsure at this time when he will be released or what the recovery timeframe will be. We anticipate a family presence in Charleston for several weeks while the family continues to receive medical care and recovers enough to travel back to Charlotte.
The Logistics division has maintained frequent contact with Malik and his family since Sunday. The family’s immediate needs as of now is lodging for his Grandmother and Aunt that will be staying in Charleston until everyone is released from the hospital. We are seeking monetary donations from the department to help provide some financial relief for Malik’s family during this difficult time. An account has been set up at the CFDCU in Malik’s name to accept any donations. Donations and gift cards can also be dropped off at CFD Logistics.
Please keep Malik and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
