Trumbullites Reaching Out for Injured Trumbull Man's Family

A Trumbull man and father of three is paralyzed after injuring his spinal cord in a fall July 24.

Trumbullites Reaching Out for Injured Trumbull Man's Family
Trumbull resident Jose Morales, a father of three, injured his spinal cord in a July 24 fall and is not expected to walk again, but the community is supporting him.

"Jose is self-employed and the sole financial provider for the family, while his wife, Monica, is a stay-at-home mom. They have three young children, [ages 8, 6 and 2]," according to Facebook. "They have no local family and many of their basic necessities will need to be covered while Jose recovers and undergoes months of rehabilitation."

"We are reaching out to you because this group always comes through for our community. Their needs will be many," it said.

The helpers listed several immediate needs:
  • Gift cards to Stop and Shop, Target, Gas stations, Walmart, American Express, etc.
  • Clothing for the children (fall/winter) - Boy size 9, shoe size 4 or 5; girl size 7, shoe size 2; boy size 3 or 4, shoe size 8 1/2 or 9 
  • Some fun gift cards for the children/caretaker - movies, ice cream, restaurants, museum passes, etc.
  • New unwrapped gifts for the children to attend birthday parties when invited
  • Any monetary donation toward their car payments or rent.
There are four drop locations. Contact Michelle Winick Consolati, Kelly Perry Carling, Janette Henderson Pond, and Beth Eckert at:
