Candy Jimenez   SALADO, TX
The Torres family is from Salado, TX and consists of four children: Ivan Torres, Rudy Torres, Omar Torres, and Alex Torres. On the night of February 6, 2014 they suffered a horrible house fire that engulfed nearly everything in its path. It is of great sadness that such a tragedy could occur. Not only did they lose their home but also a loved one, Alex Torres. Anyone who knows the Torres family knows that they are wonderful, amazing, and kind people whom did not deserve to have this tragedy brought upon them. I am a close friend of the family and many have been reaching out to help in any way possible. After speaking with an individual from the family, the conclusion was made that this would be a convenient way for anyone who wants to help to do so. All proceeds will go directly to the family for clothes, food, rebuilding their house, etc. We greatly appreciate all the support that has been pouring out from our town, Salado, and every individual.
