Calling all Home Town fans: Erin Napier is asking for your help after Jeffrey Stewart, an electrician on the hit HGTV show, injured himself after falling off a ladder.

On Friday, the 35-year-old designer took to her Instagram Story to share the sad news. "This is Mr. Jeffrey, one of our dear friends and an electrician on Home Town," Napier wrote alongside a photo of him, according to Popculture. "He was badly injured in a work accident this week (not on Home Town), and he needs our help!"

She included a link to a GoFundMe page, which was created by Carrie Aguirre, who appears to be family friend of Stewart's. The page offers more details on the severity of Stewart's injury, which required him to be airlifted to Forrest General Hospital in Mississippi.

Fortunately, Stewart is doing well now; however, he is left with "a stack of medical bills to pay." Aguirre asks fans "for any help you can provide this family." She continues: "If you know the Stewarts you know how kind, generous, and loving they are. Let’s show them an outpouring of support during this troublesome time. Thank you all!" As of Monday afternoon, the page raised over $15,ooo, surpassing its original goal of $10,000 goal. You can donate to the Stewart's medical fund here.

This isn't the first time Napier has called to fans for help. In September, she started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for Mike Husers, Home Town's flooring expert. As she explained in an Instagram post at the time, Husers needed surgery to fix a hip injury from years of crouching and sanding. The GoFundMe she set up, which has since closed, raised over $19,000. Napier noted in an update to her Instagram post that they had "met the goal, and Mike’s recovery will be much easier thanks to y’all!

Over the weekend, she gave fans another update on Husers via Twitter, announcing that his surgery is scheduled to take place next month. His recovery is expected to take eight weeks.
