ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A local restaurant is pitching in to help a devasted family grappling with the loss of their heroic son.

“Being a parent, just imagining the loss that this family is going through is terrible but it’s also inspiring because, through his organ donation, he helped people after his death. So in a way, Xaven lives on,” Elliot said.

Thursday, December 2, the restaurant is donating 100% of its profits to Xaven’s family for funeral expenses, rebuilding costs, or whatever else they need as they pick up the pieces from the fire. The Farmacy is also accepting donations in person and over the phone during Thursday’s fundraiser. The restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
