Deliverista's Funeral Fund for Chavita

My name is Francisca Navarrete Flores, I'm Salvador Navarrete Flores's sister, for many of us know as "Chavita." My brother and I are from the community of Soledad, which is part of the municipality of Malinaltepec, in the state of Guerrero, south-western Mexico.  Last night, Monday, December 13, 2021 my brother "Chavita" was killed in the Upper East Side while coming home from work. 

In 2011, Chavita migrated to the Highbridge neighborhood of The Bronx, in search of a better life for his 12-year old son, Bryan Navarrete. He worked as a food prepper for Just Salad and as an app delivery worker for Doordash and Relay.  During the pandemic, my brother prepared food for nurses and doctors at a Manhattan Hospital and risked his life delivering food and medicine through the delivery apps. My brother worked hard to support his only son and our mother, Herminia Flores Marcos. His dream was to return to Mexico to see his son and my mother. 

My bother was 31-years old and was a hero. He risked his own life for this city and our family.  Heroes like my bother did not deserved to die the way he did.  Unfortunately, We ask for your support in order to pay his funeral expenses and be able to provide financial support to his son. 

Sadly, he won’t be able to see his son and our mother again.  We are raising funds to cover his funeral expenses and support his son. Unfortunately, my bother nor I make enough money and we are hoping to count with the support of the community to be able to cover all funeral costs. We welcome your support during difficult times.

My bother was well known within the delivery worker community for his actvism and was part of Los Deliveristas Unidos. He joined many of the rallies of  Los Deliveristas Unidos to win justice and dignity for all delivery workers in New York City.  Now, it's time to join us in supporting him and his son. Thank you for showing support and love for my bother Chavita. 

On behalf of the entire family Navarrete Flores for taking the time to support our family and donating to his fund. Ismael Leon Alvarez is his brother in law who will be helping the family withdraw the fund on his behalf and pass it on to his son and will be covering the funeral expenses.

Mi nombre es Francisca, soy la hermana de Salvador Navarrete Flores, conocido como "Chavita." Mi hermano y yo somos de la comunidad de Soledad, Municipio de Malinaltepec en el estado de Guerrero México. Chavita emigró a New York en el 2011 con el sueño de darle una mejor vida a su único hijo Bryan Navarrete de 12 años y apoyar económica a nuestra madre Herminia Flores Marcos. Su sueño era volver con su hijo y nuestra madre.

Chavita trabajó como preparador con la compañía Just Salad por 6 años y a la misma vez hacía reparto de comida con la compañía de relay y doordash. Durante la pandemia, preparaba la comida en Just Salad para los enfermeras y doctores de un Hospital en Manhattan y entregando comida a otros neoyorquinos en medio de la pandemia. 

Mi hermano  tenia 31 años de edad y era un héroe, arriesgaba su vida por esta ciudad y su familia. Mi hermano no merecía morir de esta manera. Desafortunadamente, nos encontramos en una situación económica dificil, y estamos pidiendo el apoyo de la comunidad para cubrir los gastos funebres y la repatriación de su cuerpo. 

Tristemente, mi hermano ya no podrá ver a su hijo ni a nuestra madre. La verdad que  mi hermano ni yo ganamos suficiente dinero para cubrir estos gastos y nos sentimos forzados a pedir el apoyo de la comunidad.   Agradecemos mucho su apoyo en estos momentos difíciles.

Mi hermano era muy conocido dentro de la comunidad de Deliveristas por su actvismo y era parte de Los Deliveristas Unidos. El se unió a muchas de las marchas y el movimiento de Los Deliveristas Unidos para ganar justicia y dignidad para todos los Deliveristas  en la ciudad de Nueva York. Ahora nos encontramos pidiendo el apoyo para el y su hijo.  Gracias por mostrar apoyo y cariño por mi hermano Chavita.
