Fundraising Efforts by Lemus Construction for Victims in Guatemala
Fundraising efforts are underway now through June 22nd by one of our long time sponsors, Lemus Construction, to help those devastated by the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala. Financial donations as well as clothing and medical supplies are being collected. Information on how to help is listed below.
We are devastated by the news of the eruption of the Fuego Volcano in Guatemala this past Sunday and the most recent news that the eruptions have continued this morning. There are 75 confirmed dead, although many are unidentifiable. There are reports of nearly 200 missing in addition to the rising death toll.
As many of you may know our owner, Victor Lemus and his family, as well as our General Manager, Mario Aguilar, and many colleagues are proud to call Guatemala their home country.
Please help us in raising money to send to the families devastated by this disaster. Many people have been forced to evacuate their homes and have lost all personal belongings. If you would like to donate please follow the link to our GoFundMe page.
Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 for those affected by June 22. The total dollar amount raised will be matched by Lemus Construction.
Additionally, we will be collecting first aid kits, clothes, shoes, blankets and toys for the thousands that have been displaced and are now living in shelters. If you would like to find out more details please contact Alyce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
