Each and every person he meets, he tries to help.
“I just want to make sure that no one gets left out,” he says. “No matter where they come from, they deserve the same services in the community.”
José’s roots in service run deep in York.
When his grandmother first moved here from Puerto Rico, she helped start a soup kitchen.
As a 9-year-old boy, José would clear tables, serve food, and make people feel welcome in the church basement.
That kind of service in the community was part of the fabric of his family — it’s just what they did.
It’s what he continues to do every day.
“That’s what makes me sleep well at night,” José says, “knowing I tried to help everyone who walked through my door that day.”
