Howard Gordon Sr., who has been servicing the fleet for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department as a contractor for more than 20 years, lost his 45-year-old son in a fire that also burned down their family home in the Central-Alameda neighborhood of South Los Angeles on Dec. 7. 

According to a report from KTLA 5 news, the department knew it was their turn to help Gordon Sr., and did just that by donating new matresses and other essentials to ensure he and his three grandchildren could start rebuilding their lives. 

"In the middle of a pandemic when everybody is hurting, we all have to rally around each other and support each other," L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva stated.

GoFundMe page was also created to help with additional expenses, including clothing, hygiene supplies, funeral arrangements, and money to help rebuild their home.
