WAYS TO HELP UVALDE VICTIMS; RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS & PARENTS

Resources help for Uvalde - Counseling - Donations

Monetary Donations:

GoFundMe has established a hub where those who want to give money can safely donate to verified fundraisers for people affected by the Robb Elementary School shooting. Among them is VictimsFirst, a network of families of the deceased and survivors from previous mass shootings. https://www.gofundme.com/c/act/donate-to-texas-elementary-school-shooting-relief


Blood donations:
If you’re in the San Antonio area this holiday weekend, you can donate blood directly to the victims through the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center in San Antonio:  https://biobridgeglobal.org/events/list/?tribe_eventcategory%5B0%5D=468&skin=donors

While north Texas donations will not go to Uvalde, this is a good reminder of the need to keep local stock piles up.  Please consider donating blood to a local blood center.  https://www.carterbloodcare.org/

 

Funeral Expenses for victims:

Two Uvalde area funeral homes, Hillcrest Memorial Funeral Home and Rushing-Estes-Knowles Mortuary, said in social media posts that they would not charge families of victims for their funeral services.
