The BBVA Compass bank branch on Church Street, in conjunction with the Miranda family and the Mexican Consulate in Sacramento, has set up an account that will help relatives of the six family members killed in a car crash last week pay for funeral expenses and medical costs for 9-year-old survivor Eden Miranda in the wake of the tragedy.

Eden Miranda is recovering in a Sacramento-area hospital from injuries he received in the collision that took the lives of his father, pregnant mother and three siblings.

Members of the public and people holding various fundraisers to support the family and Eden can deposit money directly into the account, said Nicole Lopez, executive vice president of the BBVA Compass Church Street Banking Center. Only designated members of the Miranda family will be able to withdraw money from the account, she said.

Donations to the account can be made at any BBVA Compass branch by referencing the Miranda family and customer No. 10877761.

BBVA Compass customers can sign up for a program in which the company will donate 0.25 percent of total transactions customers make using their debit and credit cards every month to the Miranda family. Additionally, Lopez said the bank will donate $50 for every new account set up when new account holders ask that it be given to the Miranda family.

The Church Street Banking Center will hold other fundraisers at the branch with the Miranda family and the Mexican Consulate, she said.
