Please Help us Bury our Hero

Donald Bennett, a disabled Marine veteran, father and friend to many, passed away on Saturday December 21st in the Alpine Motel Apartments fire located in Las Vegas Nevada while helping several families escape. Donald has since been labeled a hero; however, his actions of servitude and loving character were evident well before this last tragically heroic deed. In effort to aid the family in honoring Donald an giving him the memorial he deserves to say last goodbyes, we are currently asking for donations to help cover the cost of his funeral. Thank you for your time and consideration and any assistance that can be offered sending this national and community hero on his final homegoing.
