Like everyone in our community, we were horrified and heartbroken as the news of a mass shooting downtown trickled in Monday morning. We know this can happen anywhere, but it’s uniquely painful when it happens in your own hometown. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and we call on our leadership to make decisions that will make this time the last time.
If you’d like to help those those impacted, below is a comprehensive list of actions you can take from blood donation to verified GoFundMes. We love Louisville, and we love you.
How to help:
- Donate to give blood through the American Red Cross to help victims in critical care and replenish local hospitals' blood supply. You can book an appointment at redcrossblood.org.
- Donate to the families directly through GoFundMe. A verified hub has been set up to ensure that your donation goes to survivors and victims’ families. Donate to the funds here. Or, if you can’t donate, sharing the fundraisers on social media is helpful too.
- Donate to support Officer Nickolas Wilt’s medical and recovery expenses directly here.
