SJSU students robbed on Christmas

http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-courts/ci_29315684/thieves-upend-christmas-group-hard-working-san-jose?source=infinite-up On Christmas day 7 hardworking San Jose State University students were victims of a ruthless burglary.  All 7 of the house members work 1 to 2 jobs in order to pay their rent as well as college tuition while pursuing their dreams of higher education.  Gaby Avila was the first of the roommates to step into the ransacked home and left speechless when she discovered their home had been pillaged and turned completely inside out by the invaders.  Desks were toppled, dressers, desks and closets were raided and each housemate's belongings were scattered throughout the entire home.

 Fortunately, no one was injured during the invasion, but the looters made off with everything; precious family keepsakes, jewelry, cameras, laptops, bicycles, iPads, guitars, and Christmas presents intended for their families.  Although the campaign goal of $6500 will not be enough to cover all the lost expenses, it will certainly be an amazing jumpstart when divided evenly among all 7 house members. The funds for this campaign will go towards replacing some of the items all students rely on a daily basis, whether it be a bike to ride to class and work, or laptops, which every student heavily depends on in the grueling pursuit of their Undergraduate degree.  

Thank you for your time and consideration, any form of support or donation is greatly appreciated!

God bless and happy holidays!
