Funeral and living costs

I am a coach of many youth teams and one of my young players that i coach has just lost his mother to cancer at the age of 16. He plays for my team at University High School where i am his coach. Obviously with my history I can relate and we are all heartbroken for the boy. He lived with his mum and sister so the financial burdon is something no schoolboy should have to deal with. Along with the team at school, i am trying to help raise funds to help with funeral costs and living expenses for him and his sister for the immediate future such as phone bills, utilities and gemeral living expenses. I will also be setting up a college fund for him.
Any amount would be welcomed if you can spare a little. 
We will be playing this season in her honour with heavy hearts.
All money once withdrawn will be either placed in the college fund or immediately used to help out in the neccessary places the family see fit.
Thank you in advance.

Shantel Romero will be the designated beneficiary of the funds raised as Ryan is under 18. She is his older sister and they live together . As his sister she will be able to help designate the money to certain bills that are needed to be brought current and make sure any other issues are taken care of . 
She is also helping place a vast amount of funds into either a trust or college fund for Ryan.
I will be meeting with her and her bank manager to discuss what type of trust/fund woudl be the best option.
