The community is coming together to collect donations to help pay for burial services for an 8-year-old boy who was killed in Fresh Meadows last month.

Jerry Kenmoe was found dead in his home on June 29 after his father, who has been charged with his murder, strangled him, according to officials.

Funds are being raised to help his mother pay for funeral services and to have her son’s remains brought back to Douala, Cameroon, her native country, for burial, according to Kathryn Como, whose son went to school with Jerry at P.S. 107, where he was a fourth-grader.

Donations will be collected on Saturday in front of the school, located at 167-02 45 Ave. in Flushing between, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Funds are also being accepted through the site crowdrise.com, and can be made here.
