Contreras Family Fundraiser

Mi Pueblo Food Center at Capital Square

Mi Pueblo Food Center at Capital Square

The young 12-year-old son of Yesenia and Samuel Contreras was shot in the head Halloween night. It is difficult to imagine the emotional agony his parents have been suffering. Mathson Middle School Principal, Orlando Ramos, agrees with me that it is a miracle that their son is alert and responsive.

Now the residents of San Jose can lend the Contreras family a hand. The Alum Rock School District is inviting the community to the parking lot of the Mi Pueblo Food Center at Capital Square. While enjoying the sounds of a student mariachi band the public can show their support by donating checks.

    I’m so glad to see a community pull together to one of its families, like this. Please let us know the results of the fundraiser.

    I’ll check with my contacts when school resumes. Just a reminder to our readers – donations can be made through the SJPD.

    Thanks Irvine Babysitter for your concern.

    Yes, I will do my best to get an update after Christmas.
