Oanh Pham: Donations come in for daughter of woman hit, killed by truck
Pham, 33, was walking to her job at Siloam Mission last Thursday when she was hit by a truck
Donations are starting to flow into Siloam Mission for the daughter of a support worker killed last week.
Oanh Pham, 33, was walking to her job at the homeless shelter last Thursday when she was hit by a truck at King Street and Logan Avenue.
Lawrence Mulhall, one of Pham's friends, said the family is focused on taking care of her 18-month-old daughter Hannah.
She has "her mom's big smile and lights up a room," Mulhall said.
"She's just so little, precious little thing ... she just had her mom," said Mulhall. "Of course she'll have her grandparents — they have a great family — two brothers, we'll all be involved. But, you know, they are going to need some financial support."
Siloam has set up a donation page on its website. The money will go to a trust fund for Hannah.

The girl will be cared for by Pham's mother and sister.
Pham's friends said she was a single mom who juggled odd jobs to support her daughter.
"It's pretty hard to imagine that ... she is gone," said Mulhall.
Her funeral was held on Saturday.
