Kendra Scott El Paso To Hold Fundraiser for Family of El Paso Man Killed In Train Derailment
The family of an El Paso man that was tragically killed after two trains delayed in El Paso’s lower valley is hoping that the community will show their support this Friday at an event meant to raise funds to assist the family during this tough time.
Back in August, Mario Aurelio Navarro, who was a train conductor for Union Pacific, was guiding the engineer into the rail yard when a derailment device that was not removed impacted the derailment, causing Navarro to be hit and killed by the train car.
The tragic incident came as a shock to locals who knew Navarro but it was his family that was the most impacted by this tragedy.
"We will all miss him more than words can express. He was not just our co-worker but our brother as well. I cannot describe how this hurts. I would like for everyone to please pray for his family. They need it more than ever,” read a post on a GoFundMe page created for Navarro’s family.
Navarro was a loving son, father and a husband and he leaves behind two young children and a wife.
Kendra Scott of El Paso is hoping to help the Navarro family by holding a special “Kendra Gives Back” event on Friday, September 30th.
People are invited to shop at Kendra Scott’s El Paso location which is located at 6801 N. Mesa St. Ste. A7.
The fundraising event will last all day Friday and into Saturday, October 1st. Shoppers can either shop in store and mention “The Navarro Family” at checkout or you can shop online and use the code GIVEBACK-CRAAE before you checkout online.
20% of every purchase on this day will be donated to support Navarro family.
