Rebuild SLP Family Lake St. Business Joyería Jelly

The Sanchez family lives in St. Louis Park. They own a Minneapolis business called Joyeria Jelly. The business was hit by vandalism and looting during the protests in Minneapolis. The business was completely gutted and they lost everything, including the Sanchez family's future livelihood.   

Luis and Erika Sanchez are the parents of this loving SLP family whose lives were turned upside down by this loss. Not only was their inventory stolen, and safe emptied, but they are responsible to repay for the jewelry that was being repaired, when stolen. The inventory alone was estimated at $55,000 and their particular insurance doesn't cover looting.

The Sanchez Family is part of our SLP community. Luis is a humble loving father whose world is his wife and four children who attend SLP's Early Learning Preschool, Aquila Elementary, and the SLP Middle School. Luis has worked in the pawn industry for thirteen years and has been on his own with Joyería at this Lake Street location for seven years.   

Donations will be used for repairs, missing jewelry, tools, inventory, displays, and any other business expenses needed to reopen.  Any financial donation is appreciated and a blessing to help the family start rebuilding.

Spanish:
La familia Sánchez vive en St. Louis Park (SLP). Son dueños de un negocio de Minneapolis llamado Joyería Jelly. El negocio fue golpeado por vandalismo y saqueos durante las protestas en Minneapolis. El negocio fue completamente destruido y lo perdieron todo, incluido el sustento diario de la familia Sánchez.

Luis y Erika Sánchez son los padres de esta amorosa familia de SLP cuyas vidas se volcaron al revés por esta pérdida. No solo les robaron su inventario y lo vaciaron la caja fuerte, sino que son responsables de pagar las joyas que se estaban reparando a clientes cuando se las robaban. El inventario se estimó en $ 55,000.

La familia Sánchez es parte de nuestra comunidad SLP. Luis es un padre humilde y amoroso cuyo mundo es su esposa y cuatro hijos que asisten al Preescolar en SLP, la Primaria Aquila y la Escuela Intermedia SLP. Luis ha trabajado en la industria del empeño durante trece años y ha estado en lo propio con la Joyería en esta ubicación de Lake Street durante siete años.

Las donaciones serán usadas para pagar reparaciones, joyeria faltante, herramientas, inventario, vitrinas, y cualquier otro gasto necesario para la reapertura. Cualquier donación financiera es apreciada y una bendición para ayudar a la familia a comenzar a reconstruir su negocio. 

Muchas Gracias!!!
