A family of color in Delano, in Wright County, is moving out after being targeted with racial epithets on their home.

Naresh Uppal, who built the home, has started a GoFundMe campaign to help the family move.

He says the family came home on Sunday to find the messages.

On Sunday, March 12, a family in Delano became victims of hate crime. They returned home to find that their new dream home, which they had just moved in to December 2016, had been broken into and vandalized. They discovered profanities spray painted on the walls both inside and outside the home along with stolen/damaged personal items and trash thrown around the house. TV’s and family photos were spray painted as well.

The mother works along with fostering two children, the father works outside the home.

The family moved into the home in December.

Uppal tells the Star Tribune he’ll buy the home back from the family.
