FRAMINGHAM – Mayra Ramirez grew up in Mexico City. Today, Framingham is her home with her family.
Tomorrow, she and her family will travel to Mexico City to personally help those most affected by the recent earthquakes.
A 7.1 earthquake struck Mexico on Tuesday, Sept 19 just after 2 p.m. It was the second earthquake to strike the country this month. Officials estimate more than 200 are dead from this week’s earthquake.
Ramirez, who owns two Burger City and Mexico City Taqueria in Ashland, is donating 20 percent of all sales today, Sept 20 to support the earthquake victims.
Her family plans to bring food and water to those still rescuing victims from the rumble. Recently, children were rescued from a school that had collapsed on them.
The goal is to raise $3,000.
