South Park crash: How to help with funeral expenses
7:55 AM: So far, we know that at least one of the families that lost a child in Sunday night’s crash on 8th Avenue South needs help with paying for his funeral – the family of 16-year-old Mario Luis Martinez Herrera. We are told that the family has set up an account at BECU – you can donate through any branch. The name on the account is Victor Herrera; the account number is 3579847581. The branches nearest to South Park, according to the credit union’s online locator tool, are in Tukwila and at Roxbury Safeway on the West Seattle/White Center line.
Also, a post on the Facebook memorial page for Lucie Hernandez says her viewing is tomorrow in White Center and funeral on Friday.
ADDED 11:58 AM: We’ve just learned that the Denny-Sealth Performing Arts booster club will be collecting donations for both families during their reception before a concert by both bands (and a UW band) tonight at Sealth. Their reception is at 6:30 pm in the Commons at Sealth; the free concert is at 7 in the auditorium.
