Eric Torres Kidney Transplant Fund

Eric Torres is a Pastor, Educator, Assistant Principal, and Mentor. He lovingly and sacrificially wears many hats. He has volunteered in many capacities throughout the community. Eric has served as the Coordinator of several programs such as Toys for Tots for Fairfield County, supplying Christmas gifts to children and families who otherwise would not receive gifts. He has also served as the Coordinator of the Back to School Summer Jam program where backpacks filled with school supplies are distributed to children between the ages of 5-13. He was the Coordinator of the Respite Program, an after-school program where children received assistance with their homework while providing some relief to their caregivers. Eric also serves as an associate pastor at Greater Bridgeport Christian fellowship Church.

Eric is a man who cares deeply about others, finding creative ways to meet the needs of children, youth and parents. His greatest desire is to see others excel and be all they can be for the Glory of God. He has been an example in that area, as he too has overcome many hurdles.

In October 2020, Eric was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease due to an underlying autoimmune condition and is currently receiving hemodialysis as a life-sustaining treatment. He is in desperate need of a kidney transplant and has been placed on a waiting list. Due to all his medical expenses and missed work time, this Go Fund Me Page has been created to help alleviate some of the financial stressors while he receives treatment. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated! Thank you all for your help.
