Christmas Eve Tragedy in Our Community

Posted on: December 30, 2008

If you watched the news over the last few days, you probably heard about the Christmas Eve tragedy in Covina. A man dressed as Santa Claus went to his ex wife’s parent’s home and shot several members of the family and set the home on fire. When it was over, nine family members lost their lives and the family home burned to the ground. Our friends, Christina, James and Veronica lost both of their parents, their grandparents, an uncle, three aunts and a cousin.  In all, 13 children lost one or both of their parents.  There are no words that can describe how horrific and sad this is. 

We are power in numbers. There are two things we can do for this family:

1. Pray, Pray, Pray. Please add the Ortega Family to your prayer lists and/or prayer groups.

2.These children have to arrange and pay for nine funerals.  We will be taking a collection for a gift to help the Ortega Family.  Please open your hearts and help this family out. If we each donate a few dollars we can give a substantial gift to help this family. If you are interested in donating, please stop by the store or give us a call.  Checks can be made out to James Ortega.    

Thank you!!
