Donations Sought for Family Hit by Vehicle
By edhat staff
It's GivingTuesday and we're highlighting a fundraiser for a Santa Barbara family in need.
Approximately two weeks ago, a local couple went on a date night and left their young child with their caregiver, Yanet.
Yanet, her son, and the couple's daughter were crossing the street when all three were hit by a vehicle. All three were injured and are still recovering from their injuries.
The driver stopped at the scene and called an ambulance, however, the driver is 17-years-old and did not have a valid license or insurance. This has left Yanet and her son trying to heal from their injuries while also scrambling to pay for expensive medical costs. While Yanet’s son has access to health insurance through his father, Yanet does not have the same coverage and needs support to pay mounting medical bills; the ambulance alone cost over $2,300.
The local family has created a GoFundMe account to help with their medical expenses while recovering.
On this GivingTuesday, we hope you consider donating to help this woman and these children recover from their injuries. Donations can be made here.
