On December 18th, 27-year old Angie Snoozy of Elk Point was killed just a mile from home by the Elk Point exit on I-29 northbound. And when that happened, she left behind a husband and a then 6-week old baby boy named Miles.
"She's greatly missed but there's a huge piece of her right here. If you know Angie and you look at this baby, it's a piece of Angie," said Snoozy family friend Elisha Evans-Raber.
With just one income and one parent to watch over him, Miles has had to start going to daycare which is a hefty, unexpected expense.
Enter Elisha Evans-Raber. The Snoozy family friend started a diaper, formula daycare drive for the family.
"We've got donations from Ohio and Texas, the power of Facebook is amazing," said Evans-Raber.
So far, the drive has raised about $1,800 and $56 of those dollars came from 11-year old Madison Streeter.
But here's the thing: Madison's never met the Snoozy family. Her mom showed her a link to the drive on Facebook before her birthday party.
Madison Streeter said, "She said, 'well, instead of gifts, why don't you have your friends bring diapers and formula and stuff like that?'"
And that's exactly what she did.
You see, you don't have to be a grown up to understand compassion. It's just a person, helping a person.
If you'd like to donate diapers or formula, you can drop them off here at North Sioux City City Hall, Dakota Valley Middle School, Elk Point Day Care or St. Peter's Day Care.
There's also a fund set up in Angela Snoozy's name at Pinnacle Bank.
