Our Community Comes Through Again!! Donations for "The Flower Guy" Ed Rodriquez Top $23,000

Sonora, CA...Sonora Farmers Market Manager Erin O'Hare let us know this morning that our communities have come through for one of their members once again. From Erin "I got word that our Sonora Farmers Market friends and community raised $23,000 for the family of our Flower Guy!!! AMAZING." His family will also be returning next year as vendors. The Mother Lode and Sierra Communities have shown again why this is one of the best places on the planet to live!!!

Here's how to donate directly to Ed's family:

Checks can be made out to Maria Ochoa and they can be sent to Maria Ochoa c/o Carlos Dutra 6912 East Main St. Stockton, CA 95215

Ed's full name was Eleazar Rodriguez Ochoa but for some reason the authorities did not publicize his full name. Donations are being mailed to Carlos (Ed's longtime family friend) rather than directly to Ed and Maria's home because they are concerned that thieves may steal donations.

How wonderful of the community to come together for the Rodriquez family. So happy to hear that they will return to the farmers market next year.
