Teen was part of Housing Authority Teen Club

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Housing Authority of the County of Kern is holding a car wash Wednesday, July 9, to help raise money for funeral expenses for one of their Teen Club members who passed away unexpectedly.

The Housing Authority says 15-year-old Francisco Guerrero Ortiz died at Madera Children's Hospital last week from an aggressive fungus that invaded his lungs.

The car wash will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Aldo's parking lot located at 1900 Union Avenue.

Ortiz had been involved with the Housing Authority Teen Clubs since he was 8 years old.

“Frankie Guerrero was a gentle, respectful, humble, young man, but what made him stand out was that he was always putting others before him,” said Chris Carrera, Teen Club Advisor.
