Helping our LA local street vendor Don Efra

Don Efra dice: "Salgo a trabajar todos los días conociendo los riesgos que tomo pero aun no me detenié a luchar por mi familia y mi hija de dos años que es mi motivación.  Cuando empezó la pandemia, me afecto mucho mi trabajo porque dependía en los eventos sociales y ha sido dificil encontrar trabajo ya que no estábamos preparados y no imaginábamos estar en esta situación.  No he parado de trabajar porque mi prioridad es mi familia y seguiré luchando por ellos. Agradezco muchisimo a todas la personas que lean esto, gracias por su bondad y se les agradece infinitamente, Dios bendiga a todos ustedes."

Don Efra has been a street vendor for 25 years in South Central, Los Angeles and is very well known by his community for his kindness and charismatic personality. He is 53 years old and sells the most delicious bacon wrapped hotdogs, raspados, corn, and more. He says he is very aware of the risks he takes every day with street violence and the pandemic but works hard every day to provide for his family.  When the pandemic started, he was affected financially  as he depended on social events for work. His family was not prepared and did not imagine being in this situation but remain hopeful to make it through this difficult time.  Any proceeds will be going directly to Don Efra to pay off overdue bills (vending citations, mortgage and utilities), food, and basic necessities for his family. 
Thank you to everyone who reads this and he is very grateful for your kindness and generosity. God bless you.
