After arson, kids get down to business

CK Food & Fuel, at 48th and Nicollet is a frequent stop for Washburn High School students in Minneapolis, KARE 11 says. They’re pretty big fans of Martin Onuh, too.

“He would ask how your day is going, instead of you asking how his day is going,” said freshman Nyagach Kueth.

“If we didn’t have enough he would say, ‘Go ahead, pay the rest whenever you can,’” senior Deaven James said.

So when someone torched the business, which isn’t covered by insurance, they didn’t take it lying down.

They’ve raised almost the entire $15,000 goal to get him back in business in just two days.

Martin, who runs CK gas station by Washburn High School in Minneapolis MN had his gas station catch on Fire last night Sept. 29 2018.

Martin is the only person that works at this gas station. He works 12 hours days. Everyday for lunch students flood this gas station to get snacks and crack some jokes with Martin.

Martin always has a smile on his face and is always willing to talk about sports, school and life with the many kids he sees. Us as Washburn High School seniors don’t want to see Martin lose the place he worked so hard at.

Donations will go directly to Martin for the rebuild/repairs of his store or what ever he needs to get back on his feet. We want to see that smile from Martin again soon.

Because: kids today, eh?
