Faultless Explosion Victims Fund

In the early morning hours of Monday, April 3, 2017, a reported boiler explosion in the Loy Lange plant in south St. Louis sent heavy debris into the air and through the roof of the nearby Faultless Healthcare Linen facility. Three Faultless Healthcare Linen employees, Tonya Gonzalez-Suarez and Christopher Watkins, who were married to each other, as well as Clifford Lee, died of their injuries. For each, it was their first day of work at the plant.

So many have already reached out wanting to support these families with their devastating loss. The Sons & Daughters of Soulard , a group of charitable- and community-minded business leaders based in Soulard, were among the first to offer their aid and have graciously taken the lead in setting up a relief fund to benefit the families. We will be coordinating with the families to respect their wishes. Proceeds will be equally distributed among the families and go toward anything these families need. All donations are greatly appreciated.

The Sons & Daughters of Soulard have committed to reimburse the crowdfunding fees to ensure that the victims’ families will receive your full donation.
