Gilbert Aquino Fire Relief Fund

On Monday, December 18, Gilbert Aquino and his family were victims of an unfortunate apartment fire in Philadelphia, PA. As a result, their unit had considerable flooding damage, destroying much of their belongings.

As his work family here at Children’s Literacy Initiative, we are looking to raise money for Gilbert and his family. We would like to raise money to help him recoup some of the items he has lost and take care of any financial burdens he may encounter as a result of the fire.

Gilbert is a great person, a friend to many, and a joy to be around. We are saddened by this unfortunate event, but are hopeful that with your help, Gilbert and his family can get back on their feet soon. Please help us and donate to our cause.  Every little bit helps. In the spirit of the holiday season, let’s give what we can and help someone in tremendous need.
