Residents of Discovery Bay, Byron and East Contra Costa County are coming together to help raise funds for the family of Burgess Hu who passed away last week after being struck by an SUV near Excelsior Middle School in Byron. The funds will be used for funeral expenses is what we are being told.
If you would like to help with the funeral costs for Burgess Hu, you can donate here. They are a very private family and are overwhelmed with this tragedy and didn’t want donations but the cost of Burgess’ service is too much for their family. The funds collected on this fundraising page will be going directly to the family or the family’s facilitator to be delivered to them.

Here is a message from Bill Morganstein about the funds they are collecting:
They are a very traditional family and did not want to accept donations in the beginning. I live in Discovery Bay and all throughout our community there are requests for donations. The Boy Scout leader has also set up a fundraiser if people want to mail a check. Here is his message:
