My dad, Tony Kokozian, is a 78 year-old owner of a small shoe business in the heart of LA. Successfully thriving on Melrose for 31 years, my father’s shoe store met its end in an LA riot fire on May 30th. As his shoe boutique was his only source of income, its destruction has lead to a great loss for him and the rest of my family. My dad is just one of the many small business owners who is now suffering financially, and emotionally, and we are asking you to please help me and my family rebuild the pieces of the foundation it took many years for us to build, and to help cover the cost of damages, as the insurance will not cover damages made due to vandalism. Any bit of support would help. Prayers go out to all the victims and families suffering, and support goes out to the peaceful BLM protests across the nation.
