Joseph Petras and His Family

When tragedy hits it is the best way to see the goodness and strength that lies within a community. On May 22nd Amiela O’Campo was walking to her morning job, and tragically she was hit by a car. She suffered severe injuries to her head, neck, and leg. She remains in the ICU in critical condition.

Benjamin, Amiela, and Joseph are now faced with a tremendous emotional and financial burden. There has been a huge outpouring of concern and sincere interest to help. This page has been established to provide an avenue for the community to offer assistance.
