Citizenship for Two Local Students

We are working to raise money for a local family whose two sons have the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA (Dreamers) -- their mom, Esther, is an USA citizen. The two boys, 17 and 20, are students (Fort Walton Beach High School and NorthWest Florida State College) and work at a local restaurant. Their mother also works  at a local high school and bakes/cooks for extra money. We are literally asking every single person we know if they can spare any amount to help with the $10,000 of processing fees associated with this citizenship process. Our son played soccer with their older boy for years and they are a wonderful family. We would love to help ease the burden on them and help them get to the American consulate in Mexico in December to finalize the paperwork. Thank you! My friend Nancie and I are planning to be stewards of the money and will ensure all proceeds go to the family.
