Andrea Gonzalez was 13 year old 8th grade student at Santiago Charter Middle School. She was tragically taken from her family and friends on Halloween while trick-or-treating by a hit-and-run driver. All three girls struck by the vehicle died at the scene. Her family, friends, classmates, teachers, and our entire school community is devastated by her loss.

As the Principal of Santiago Charter Middle School and with the permission of Andrea’s parents, I have created this page to raise money to donate to Andrea's family to help with funeral expenses and other monetary costs during this time of tragedy.  Andrea was a beautiful little girl with a warm smile, kind heart, many friends, good grades, and perfect attendance. May God be with her, and her family.

If you are in a position to donate and would like to do so, please do so at this site. Please pray for all three little girls, their families, friends, and classmates.

(If you would like to verify the legitimacy of this site, you may also go to the Santiago Charter Middle School webpage and click the link on the left hand side of the page to donate to the family.)
