Helping the Maldonados

It is with a heavy heart that I ask for your help for the Maldonado family. On the night of November 27th shortly after 7pm, Rosalinda and Fernando Maldonado lost their youngest son, Jose Maldonado. He was just 17 years old. Jose was involved in a hit and run accident which involved an SUV while he was crossing the street using a crosswalk in Vista. The driver did not stop. A suspect was later taken into custody. I am setting up this go fund me account to help the Maldonado family with the expenses that will come along with this devastating time. Please find it in your heart to help. Jose was a great kid, with a kind heart and such a funny character. He was the youngest of 4 boys and leaves behind 3 older brothers and his 2 parents along with lots of family and friends who will miss him dearly.
Thank you in advance for your donation, it is greatly appreciated!
