Two local teachers helped out a family that were victims of a shooting where a student was shot at the end of the summer break. The teachers, a husband and wife, took in one of the family members upon discharge from the hospital to care for her. Additionally they took in other family members that were later released from the hospital as there was too much trauma for the family to return to their home at this time. Change for a Dollar was approached to see if there was some way to help the family with the additional financial burden they incurred while caring for the family of the student that was shot. A food gift card was purchased to help replenish the family pantry and offset food costs to help with the other costs of housing the survivors.
