My my name is Rob Mitchell. I live in West Grove Pennsylvania, a small town 60 miles southwest of Philadelphia. I saw a news article which described the events surrounding Raziel's drowning. I was touched by his courage and compassion to help others. I learned later that he was a student at the local high school where my wife teaches. She had Raziel's brother as a student and told me about the financial hardships the family had when the brother passed away a year ago following a brief illness.
I started this this campaign to raise as much money as possible for Raziel's family as they will be transporting him to Mexico to be buried. A local church, St. Rocco's in Avondale PA. Is collecting donations for the family. I spoke to Father Frank of the church today to coordinate transfer of the donations to the church . He said the funds will be used to help with funeral, transportation, and medical bills that are expected as a result of the accident. I plan on providing St. Rocco's a check for the total amount of funds received from gofundme.com.
