Amster said people interested in helping the Greens with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills may send donations, for now, to Southside Baptist Church, P.O. Box 99, Effingham, IL 62401. Both he and Scott Green said a more formal benefit site may be set up at a later date.
Aaron, who is home-schooled, is the oldest of five Green children — and the only boy. The family has lived in Teutopolis for three years.
