Juan Carlos Garcia School Fund

My name is Juan Carlos Garcia. I am 16 years old, and I’m from Monterrey, Mexico. On November 25th, 2019, International Day for the elimination of violence against women, my mom was murdered in front of my brother and I. After all these events, my dad is nowhere to be found and he hasn’t given me or my family any money at all. My mom was our strength and our only emotional and support. Despite all the sadness after losing my mom, and with no resources at all, I was blessed because my High School offered me financial aid to continue my studies for the rest of the year. My passion is basketball and I had a scholarship in The Storm King School, in upstate NY, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, I was told that my scholarship could not be supported anymore for next year. I’m currently living with my grandmother, who is 74 years old, and I can’t afford to pay tuition for my Junior year.
My mom taught me to never give up, no matter how bad a situation can be, but to keep going. I know there are some people out there that will understand or at least imagine how it feels to wake up every morning knowing that you will not see your mother’s eyes, hug her, and tell her how much she means to you anymore. I want to show my mom that I will never give up, no matter what gets in my way. 
I beg your help in any way, so I can continue my studies abroad. Any type of donation will be greatly appreciated. God bless you and stay safe during these tough times!

Thank you for taking the time to read the story. 
All donations received will be applied directly to pay in August the tuition for the 2020-2021 school year.
The donations are going to help cover the cost of boarding, tuition, and fees.
I (Eduardo) will be withdrawing the funds directly to my checking account.
A check will be issued and mailed to Storm King School on behalf of Juan Carlos to pay for his 2020-2021 tuition.


We appreciate all the donations made, but a question has arisen.
