A community member started a GoFundMe campaign for Cam Huong International, a restaurant in Oakland, California, that was vandalized allegedly by a truck.
According to the GoFundMe Page, the Cam Huong, located in Oakland’s Little Saigon neighborhood, was vandalized on November 16 around 3 a.m. Chris Rey, a concerned customer who started the page, wrote that seeing the damage was “heartbreaking.”
“As a concerned customer, and with the community’s help, let’s join forces to support their rebuilding efforts,” Rey, who has been going to Cam Huong since he was a child, wrote on the page. “100% of proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to Cam Huong to help alleviate repair costs for the damage to their storefront. Together, we can ensure that they continue to thrive and contribute to the well-being of our neighborhood.”
It is unclear if law enforcement is investigating the incident. District 2 Councilmember Nikki Fortuna Bass, who is also the president of the Oakland City Council, shared the GoFundMe campaign on social media.
