Please Help Erick's Family

Erick lives in Oregon and works at the Medford Best Buy store, but his mother's home in Puerto Rico was completely destroyed by a 6.4 earthquake on January 7th, 2020. His mother was in the middle of rebuilding the home after it was severely damaged by hurricane Maria in 2017.  The epicenter of the earthquake was only 7 miles away from her home. 

Currently, Erick's mother is living in a small apartment with no electricity or water. Erick has been sending money home to his mother since being in Oregon. He wasn't able to contact his mother since the earthquake. When Erick finally received a call from his mother, he transferred everything from his bank account, except for $2.

Best Buy was able to send him home to Puerto Rico for a week so he can help his mother, but we are hoping to raise funds so Erick can continue to help his mother through this heartbreaking time. Please help Erick by donating what you can and/or sharing this fundraiser.
