Rodriguez Family Support Fund

On Sunday, January 14, 2018 a tragic crash took the life of Jose Rodriguez and sent the other three passengers in his car, his wife, and his two daughers to the hospital in critical condition.

His wife and two daughters (ages 9 and 12) are facing a mountain of surgeries, recovery, and mourning as they deal with the unfortunate outcome of this tragedy.

The family is a pillar in their community, raising four amazing children. Rodriguez was a respected business owner, and his wife dedicates her life to developing young leaders and strong youth through her non-profit, United At Peace. 

While their strong family, friends, and community are rallying around them, there is more we can do. Please help us raise funds to support the Rodriguez family through their mourning, medical challenges, and recovery.

There is no one more deserving of our support than a family who has spent their entire lives supporting others. Even small donations make a difference.

Other ways to donate:

The Marengo High School Althetic Department is rallying the community to donate Visa gift cards, or gift cards to local restaurants or grocery stores, in addition to monetary donations. These can be dropped off at the Margengo Community High School on 110 Frands Road, Marengo.

An account has also been opened at the Prairie Community Bank in Marengo under Rodriguez Family Fund, where donations can also be made directly.
