Manuel Rodriguez the ice cream man
If you’re from Joliet many of you have seen Manuel (aka Pancho) pushing his cart through Joliet. I saw the story on the little village paltero and how a community came together to help their local paltero. With that being said, some friends and I decided to launch this campaign to help Pancho, a hard working 79 year old Joliet paltero man with back problems that was also recently attacked by a pitbull. He’s been pushing his cart all around Joliet for as long as I can remember and we’d like to help him out with his bills which include medical bills due to the pitbull attack in which he suffered from numerous bites while selling his ice cream. I have so much respect for people like him that know no boundaries and are out there regardless of the weather. We may not be able to help everyone but helping him makes a big difference to us. I don’t know him directly but I have been in communication with his daughter and she is very grateful for everything. At the moment he is not aware of this but we can’t wait to show him! We will keep everyone updated and will definitely show proof. Furthermore, id like to mention Mr.McFarland of the Joliet City Council has also joined our efforts to help Mr.Pancho. Any donation and sharing is greatly appreciated. God bless everyone, thank you!
Born and raised in Joliet, this poor man is in worse shape and can barely push the cart around. I don't think people are that horrible to make up a story, the picture Says it all and if it's coming from your heart to donate, do it without questioning! I wish I can help everyone out struggling in this world but I'm sure every little bit will help him! Let's get him home and enjoying the rest of his time with his loved ones!! Blessings ❤️
This is not fake it is legit, it's a different man. When the gofundme campaign for Mr fidencio started I donated money thinking it was this man, but I don't regret helping mr Fidencio because both men deserve the help but this is our Joliet man and he deserves to be helped too. I always try to buy paletas from him even though they're not the best but just to help him. I have seen his struggle pushin his carrito on the hill by the old silver cross hospital. So lets spread the word to help this man.
No guys this is not fake yo soy de Joliet y to lo conosco su historia es parecida a la Del otro señor de Chicago y cuando ya no es tiempo de vender paletas anda en la calle juntando botes ya ahorita acabo de poner mi granito de arena esperamos en Dios y la jente lo ayude
I can see why people are skeptical about this being fake but it's not, I seen this guy before and I was going to make this account if jerardo hadn't done it & people wouldn't be putting 100 if it wasn't true, don't come up in here talking bout "it's fake don't donate". Research first or just don't donate but don't stop this man from getting the most he can by coming up in here wit that s•••t
Mi gente esto no es fake si es real por favor no inventen que es falso si es verdad yo eh visto a este señor vendiendo paletas. En el East side de Joliet y siempre que ando por allí lo busco para comprarle paleta sin inportar que no tenga ganas de paleta.. el señor en una ocasión me platico que el fue de los braceros que cultivaron la tierras en California y que al el no le dieron ningún dinero de indemnización. . Por eso vende paletas en verdad esta bien viejito y si da aguite que un señor de esa edad tenga que vender paletas para pagar billes y renta...
I love to see how different races come together to help out an individual who we have never meet!! How we don't see color! Just a human-being in need. This is how it should be. Helping and caring for each other. May God bless every single person helping out and may God bless America!!
i just want to let everyone know that is skeptical, this is a real person in need. i live about 15 mins from joliet , my husband always sees him when he is working in the area or when we go grocery shopping there. last summer my husband stopped there with his brother and bought about $70 worth of paletas, whatever he could fit in his large cooler that he had with him. the man said that they were sent to him from heaven and that he has been walking around all day and hardly made $10.
I'm so tired of all these negative comments, please if you don't know; research first. There is two of them and yes they look alike Mr Fidencio and Don Manuel. Fidencio is from little village, his campaing raised more than 300k this gofundpage is for Don Manuel he is from Joliet and needs the help too. They just look alike. If you don't want to help don manuel from your heart or if you think it's a scam feel free to go to Mr fidencio's page to donate but just don't stop others from helping Don Manuel too. This is NOT A SCAM
Carlos Delgado and Esteban Siu this is NOT a fake page, I know Don Manuel Rodriguez personally and have verified Jerardo Rosiles who started this wonderful campaign. His daughter has been made aware of this. If Jerardo says he will do a live video Stay Tuned. He just wanted to do the same for another hardworking paletero in another city. It just so happens it's here in the wonderful city of Joliet. Viva Mexico!
