OCSO in Action

Anonymous Donor Surprises Rodriguez Family with New Car


In December, our Aviation Section surprised the Rodriguez Family with a Christmas to remember. The family lost both parents to cancer in recent years and 20-year-old Samantha stepped up to raise her five younger siblings. The kids got a tour of the Aviation unit and were surprised to see piles of gifts for each of them.

Since then, several anonymous donors stepped forward to help Samantha and her siblings get a brand new car.

OCSO has continued to receive additional requests to help the family. Financial donations to the family can be made through GoFundMe. We are touched by the support Samantha and her family have received from our Central Florida community.
