JOPPA, Md. (WBFF) - At least two fundraisers are planned this weekend as Harford County's Route 40 corridor unites around the family of a delivery driver murdered in Edgewood Sunday.
"Tim Youngquist was delivering food for Chinese Boys. He was well known and liked locally and many have already expressed a desire to help," posted Joppa's Towne Grill & Pub on Facebook, a mainstay in the Joppatowne Plaza shopping center where New Chinese Boys is also located.
Towne Grill & Pub said both it and New Chinese Boys have set up donation boxes, and the pub is "working on a fundraiser for this Saturday."
Several other businesses wrote on the pub's post that they'd like to contribute, including Beav's Smoke Shop, Elite Custom Auto and a local photographer.
One person commented on the Chinese restaurant's Facebook post, saying "Very sorry for the loss of your driver. Hopefully there will be justice."
Pat's Pizzeria in Edgewood, where Youngquist used to work, said it will donate 10 percent of all its profits to the victim's family all this week.
"We are very sad to announce that on February 10th Timothy Youngquist, a former employee and part of Pat's family, was robbed, shot, and he, unfortunately, lost his life while delivering food. Tim was a great man, an amazing father of a young son, Hunter, and the fiancé of Mandi. Pat's would like to honor Tim this week and raise money for the family that lost a father and a companion too soon," the pizzeria posted on Facebook.
It also mentioned a GoFundMe page where people can donate. The site had raised nearly $6,000 by Monday evening.
