Help Don Juan Cover Living Expenses

Donation protected
We are raising funds to help street vendor, "Don Juan" in recovering the funds lost during a robbery on Monday, July 17, 2023, at around noon. Don Juan is an 82 year old and works as a "paletero" in the streets of Oakland daily to make a living. Don Juan has informed us that he is unable to pay his rent this month, amongst his other living expenses. This is the third armed robbery he has experienced in the past week. As a defenseless man, he is left with no choice but to withstand this behavior from these criminals and keep it pushing day by day to make a living.

Please share this post and help us help Don Juan. We thank you all for your kindness and support to this hardworking man. Very sad to see people being robbed of their only dime and trying to make a living.

Our family will provide ALL PROCEEDS to Don Juan directly. We will manage ALL FUNDS for Don Juan and provide them to him and will manage this fundraiser on his behalf. We have chosen to remain anonymous due to the increased amount of crimes in the Bay Area during this time.

Please beware of SCAMS or impersonators. This is ONE of BOTH GoFundMe for Juan. The second GoFundMe for Juan is called “ICE CREAM MAN (JUAN) ROBBED IN OAKLAND” by Gerald Sanchez. We will post updates directly to this page and the second page.
