I am a local Bishop my name is Alberto Arellano. I am trying to help this man his name is Herlindo Aguilar and he is 83 years old. Herlindo came to the USA in 1961 as a legal resident and ever since that day has worked from agriculture to construction, anything that can get him by. Herlindo does not know how to read or write well and he is losing sight. Even though he does not want to accept it, He cannot work anymore since he's hurt now but that does not stop him from going anywhere he wants in his bike and insists on doing local services sometimes in exchange for some money. He does not bother anyone and does not cause trouble. For the most part if he is not in his bike around town, he stays sitting down in a bench inside Walmart, does not say anything just stays there quietly until the sun sets.
Unfortunately He has not family nearby and he has not phone numbers of people he might have met. He would be homeless if it was not for this donated mobile camper which he has lived for the past 3 years. This place has really serious issues and he won’t last another winter in it.
He is in the middle of an industrial site where the owner has let him stay (You can see a bit of it in the background of the first pic), but last winter was extremely harsh, since during winter time this sight gets closed, just as other industries in town, and everything gets covered by snow.
Another winter won’t be save for him, and we are in need to find him a better place with a better camper and some money to get by. He has until October before he needs to move out from this industrial place. Maybe you know of someone that knows of a better place or something that can be available for him even through the government or an NGO. I hope with this money we can help him to get a better place and at least a bit more of a better live for the days he worked.
You don’t have to donate, but if you share it maybe we can find someone that can help him out.
Thank you for your desire to help
