A variety of grief materials to help families who have suffered the loss of a child have been placed throughout the community thanks to the Kolton Brim Karnes Fund of The Community Foundation, which has been paid out in full through this project and retired. In April 2010, Kolton drowned while fishing in the Dan River with his family. Funds were raised in his memory by members of the community to ensure resources were available to families in the future.
The resource materials have been made available at the following places to offer some tools to families in need:
- Legacy Hospice of the Piedmont at Danville Regional Medical Center
- Danville Public Library
- Pittsylvania County Library locations
