Community Come Together To Help Elderly Man Retire

On Father’s Day, a family bought all of an elderly ice cream seller’s paletas, which are Mexican ice pops, so he could stop working and go spend the day with his family. A video showing 70-year-old Don Rosario breaking down over the act of kindness has gone viral and been viewed more than five-million times on TikTok. And now people from all over are stepping up to help him.

GoFundMe retirement account for the ice cream man who walks the streets of Chicago with a refrigerated cart has donations pouring in. In one day, the fundraiser brought in nearly $40-thousand to help Rosario retire. “The money raised will hopefully allow him to no longer have to work in the heat,” the site explains.
