South Side Family is Trying to Help Local Ice Cream Vendor Retire


A local family on the South Side is trying to help an ice cream vendor retire. This is the sweetest story:

On Father’s Day, the family of Michaelangelo Mosqueda bought all the paletas from elderly ice cream vendor, Don Rosario. They didn’t want Rosario to have to work in the heat or on a holiday.

Rosario lives in the Southeast Side of Chicago and is 70-years-old.

Mosqueda created a GoFundMe page for Rosario to help him retire. The goal was to raise $10,000, and so far, it’s already passed $25,000.

Mosqueda posted the video of his family buying all the paletas from Rosario on social media, and it has now gone viral with more than 5 million views.

Definitely check out the video...it'll make you tear up!
