Losing a young child to cancer is hard enough, but throw in the financial stress of funeral expenses, and it can be overwhelming.
That's when the best of a community can step in, and in Glendale, it often does. When the El Mexicano Meat Market set up a donation jar for the family of Eduardo Morales-Peña, it was an example of neighbor helping neighbor.
Unfortunately, neighbor can also hurt neighbor, as was the case this past Sunday when someone stole the jar and the $300 that customers had donated. The alleged thief, Arthur Madoyan, was arrested a couple of days later, but he reportedly told police that the money had already been spent.
