Every little bit helps

On October 26th, our family was struck with tragedy. My father was helping his friend at a store called Family Food. He walked behind the counter at 1pm thinking that it was going to be a normal day. At 1:15pm two men entered the store and without warning one of them shot him in the stomach. They jumped over the counter, stole $100 from the register and while my father was holding his wound, bleeding out, they went through his pockets then left him for dead. My father struggled to a chair and waited until the first responders made it to the scene. It was a heartless act and the people who did this are still out there.

I'm starting this gofundme to help a man that has the biggest heart and is always going out of his way to help others. He has had a kidney transplant and a few heart surgeries in the past few years, so his recovery time for this is going to be way longer than usual, especially at 62 years of age. I want to cover his rent, car payment and cell phone bills for the next few months while he is trying to recover. Please find it in your heart to donate. Even if it’s only a dollar, every little bit counts
