Our original fundraising goal of $500,000 has been reached, and we can’t thank all of you enough! However, this is just the beginning! Please, continue to donate to these two families as we know the financial burden will be immense. Many of you may not be able to show your condolences any other way, and monetary donations will help the families immensely as they now travel through life with their new reality. On behalf of the families, departments and unions, thank you for your support during this difficult time.

Please share the fundraiser with your family, friends and colleagues and encourage them to help the financial burden both families will be facing. Together as a community, we will lift them up and vow to never forget.
