The mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin will be able to take about eight months of paid leave after her fellow Miami-Dade County employees donated some of their vacation time, according to reports.

Sybrina Fulton, a 23-year veteran of the Miami-Dade County housing authority, received $40,825 of donated vacation time, The Miami Herald reported.

The donations came after the county commission approved a resolution authorizing employees to donate their vacation time to Fulton or Yolanda Knight Evans, Trayvon's aunt and a customer service representative, the newspaper said.

According to the Herald, 192 county employees donated some of their hours to Fulton, adding up to 1,362 hours or 34 paid weeks off. Seventy employees donated to Evans.

The time off is in addition to the $100,000 raised at rallies and online that the family plans to use to form a criminal justice advocacy foundation in Martin's name.

George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Martin, also raised more than $200,000 on a website to pay for his legal defense, according to his attorney.
