PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - An outpouring show of love and support is growing for a family in Princess Anne, Md. who were victims of a brutal attack.

Airealle Sells, 25, is at Shock Trauma, while her children, an eight-year-old and four-year-old, are at Johns Hopkins Hospital after they were attacked Tuesday morning.

According to a facebook post by Airealle Sell's sister late Thursday night, Airealle was still alive but in critical condition. An update on the condition of her children was not available.

To help bring some holiday cheer during this tough time for the family, the Princess Anne Fire Department on Somerset Avenue is accepting new, unwrapped toys or cash for the victims, in order to make sure the children can still have a Christmas. "Excess toys or cash will be donated to support other women and children involved in domestic abuse situations," reads a fire department Facebook post.

According to a post by the Mt. Vernon Volunteer Fire Company, there are several other fundraisers in the community coming up. An all-day fundraiser for the victims is set for Wednesday, Dec. 14 at Peaky's Restaurant & Bar in Princess Anne on Mount Vernon Road. Ten percent of total sales that day will be donated to the Sells family.

Cafe Milano restaurant locations in Crisfield, Pocomoke and Princess Anne will also have toy donation boxes as well as donation jars for the family. 

Sharef Dontre Hayward is facing attempted murder charges in the case. Princess Anne police said Hayward stabbed his girlfriend Airealle Sells, and then assaulted her, her 8-year-old daughter and her 4-year-old son, with a hammer. He has been denied bond.
