College students donate tools to house fire victim
Richard Castillo donationUvalde, Texas, Dec. 22 – “Tis the season”, for many things, one of those being the act of giving. A perfect example of this philosophy is the rousing act of kindness performed by the SWTJC air conditioning students for a former student who recently has gone through some difficult times.

On Aug. 29, Uvalde resident, Richard Castillo and his wife lost their home of over 20 years to a fire caused by an electrical short.  Everything they owned was lost, including Castillo’s tools used for repairing appliances.

Having to stand and watch your house burn down would be a horrific experience for anyone, however on that Monday afternoon Castillo not only lost his home, he also lost his business. He would operate Ricardo and Sons Appliance Repairs from his home.

Castillo has been unable to work since the day he lost his home and business, instead he has been diligently rebuilding the house where he raised his four kids.

Everyday he shows up and does what he can do.  According to Castillo many people have come to his aid.
