They are thought to be Hicksville High School pupils. Seaford and the surrounding areas reacted swiftly to this tragic news. The administrator of the Facebook group “Friends of Wantagh-Seaford NY,” Rita Maffetone Matalone, shared the news in a post with the organization’s members. The post received over 100 reactions and over 50 comments of residents expressing their condolences to Dominguez’s family and friends after her untimely passing. To help Dominguez’s family get through these unexpectedly difficult times, two different GoFundMe accounts were started. One of them was organized by Isabelle Santos, a friend of Dominguez.
Santos stated on the GoFundMe page, “Angelia was my best friend.” She was a lovely soul that was lost too soon. Her absence will be felt deeply. Please spare a moment to contribute to my fund-raising efforts for the Dominguez family; they have experienced a terrible tragedy that no family should ever have to endure. The Li, Calixto, and Payea families, who are all headquartered in Seaford, were responsible for organizing the other GoFundMe. The organizers stated that “Angelia’s passing has broken many hearts.” “She leaves behind her loving parents – mother Jenny, stepfather Tom – sister Bella, and brothers William and Thomas, along with a large number of cousins, aunts and uncles who were like her second parents. A close-knit family that is now grief-stricken and forever broken.”
Within a week of their launch, both GoFundMe projects received over $10,000 in contributions. Seaford High School took action immediately, sending out a letter on Jan 8 both to mourn Angelia Dominguez and to offer their support to any students struggling in the aftermath of her death. The school went out of its way to reach out to students who knew her well, as well as activated their Crisis Intervention Plan for the week of Jan. 9. Each afternoon until 3:20 p.m., school counselors and psychologists were available to speak with pupils as part of the Crisis Intervention Plan.
During the morning announcements, the school gave Dominguez and her family special recognition. Nichole Schnabel, principal of Seaford High School, stated in the letter that “there are no words that we can share that can console the grief that Angelia’s family and friends must be experiencing at this time.” In light of the terrible incident, “we will do everything we can to provide support and resources as part of Angelia’s community and extended family.”
