2 & 3 of 49 - Mercedez Marisol Flores, age 26 and Amanda Alvear, age 25

Today, in honor of Mercedez Marisol Flores and Amanda Alvear, a Target gift card was donated to a Boston organization called GLASS that provides a safe and supportive place for community members to gather and spend time with friends, do homework, use a computer, eat, etc.

Mercedez lived her life to the fullest and worked hard. An 8-year employee of Target, Mercedez loved music and singing. On the night of the shooting, Mercedez was in the club with her friend Amanda, who had recently lost 180 lbs. Understandably proud of her efforts, Amanda embraced a newfound love for taking selfies. It is due to her efforts at health and personal improvement, and the encouragement of her friend Mercedez, that we have asked GLASS to purchase healthy snacks for their clients to enjoy.

We wish to extend a special thank you to our friend Eileen for donating the gift card and suggesting the recipient organization. We are so thankful for your participation and your kindness.
