Event helps Berks family

LEESPORT, Pa. -

Folks in Berks County opened up their hearts and wallets to help the family of a hardworking young mother who was killed in a car accident.

Donations for the family of 34-year-old Rebecca Enriquez were accepted Saturday during the Berks Kids Closet consignment sale at the Leesport Farmers Market.

The West Reading mom was leaving her job two weeks ago when police say her vehicle was hit head-on in Amity Township.

She leaves behind three young children, including a one-month old.

People dropped off food, clothing and baby items.

Judy Dalesandro, who organized the event, said, "It's going to be really tough for the children. I can't even imagine. This will be a good start for them."

Enriquez was supposed to be a vendor at the sale at the Leesport Farmers Market.
