Niolis Funeral Expenses

Donation protected
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the tragic loss of the daughter of Nitza Rivera and Terry Joiner. Niolis Collazo died unexpectedly Saturday night. Niolis coached the Waukegan High School boys volleyball team and graduated from the high school in 2018. In addition, she was a counselor for a Chicago-based program called “Working On Womanhood” and counseled and mentored girls at Waukegan Smith Middle School.

We are reaching out to you today to ask for your support during this difficult time. Niolis' family is facing unexpected expenses and we are hoping to alleviate some of the financial strain. We have set up a GoFundMe page in honor of Niolis to help raise funds for her funeral and burial services.

Any contribution you can make, no matter how small, will go a long way in helping her family during this trying time. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated and will help the family to focus on grieving and healing instead of worrying about the financial burden.

We want to express our deepest gratitude for any support you can provide.
