GLENDALE, Ariz. — For thousands of Arizona families, the holiday season this year is going to be a challenge after losing a loved one to the coronavirus.
But some in the Valley are already in the spirit of giving and are stepping up to bring some holiday cheer to those who need it most.
“He passed away on July 1st,” Sandra Barron said.
It’s been four months since Sandra Barron’s husband died from the coronavirus and four months since her three boys lost their father.
“After a week he passed away. No goodbye, no nothing. No time for nothing. So it was hard not only for me but for the kids that having dad all the time at home and not having him,” Sandra said.
His name was Armando.
He was 44 years old and his family cannot imagine celebrating the holidays without him.
“It’s been really hard,” Sandra said.
That’s why the Boys and Girls Club in Glendale and Cricket Wireless wanted to help.
