I Am Humboldt – For the Love of Community
“People keep saying ‘what you guys are doing is amazing and awesome’ and I just keep thinking really, this just what you do as a human. You help when you can help.”
We don’t always do back stories here at I am Humboldt, but this one is pretty amazing. Brock & Jake are temporarily running Fortuna Automotive while the owners, the Helton family, are in Santa Rosa by the side of their son, currently in a coma after a tragic accident at Centerville Beach.
Fortuna Automotive is the Helton family’s sole source of income, so Brock & Jake put their own lives on pause and are working for free at the shop to assure the Heltons are able to pay their bills during this time. If you need any auto repairs, Brock & Jake would appreciate your business at Fortuna Automotive 725-3255.
Brock currently works at an orphanage in Mexico, Rancho de Sus Ninos (rdsn.org), and Jake is a local postman. If you need your faith restored in humanity, stop by Steve’s Fortuna Automotive and say hello. These two have hearts of gold.
If you would like to help the Helton family, you can contribute to their GoFundMe page or to their church, LifeHouse, which will give 100% of all donations to the family (other pages charge a percentage).
The I Am Humboldt crew is always looking for new faces to photograph and stories to tell. Know someone with a positive tale to tell? Please message them on their page.
