Non Profit in El Paso Will Pay For All Victim Funerals
As the nation mourns the senseless shooting deaths that happened over the weekend in Dayton and El Paso, it's heartwarming to know that there are still some very, very good people in the world.
A non profit organization called Operation H.O.P.E. will cover the costs of funerals for all 22 victims in El Paso, including ones that were not US citizens. Angel Gomez of Operation H.O.P.E. told ABC News, via People: 'We have 22 victims. We will be providing their funeral services, not only in the El Paso area, but we’re going to be sending the bodies once they get embalmed to Juarez, Mexico, Torreon and Chihuahua. And this is all done at no cost to the families.'
Operation H.O.P.E. stands for Helping Other People Endure, and they are working in conjunction with nine area funeral homes in El Paso to give the victims a proper and respectful send-off. See their statement below. #RIP
