How to donate to the official funds that help Uvalde school shooting victims
How to help the victims’ families in Uvalde
In the wake of the horrific school shooting that left 19 children and two teachers dead in Uvalde on Tuesday, people are wondering how they can help. Unfortunately, there are already scams associated with the tragedy so people are urged to be careful when sending money to any cause. In addition to giving blood, people can also donate to the official funds set up to help the families of the school shooting victims.
The OneStar Foundation has created a webpage for donations to support the victims’ families, teachers and the Uvalde community. All donations submitted through the OneStar Foundation site will be funneled to the Robb School Memorial Fund established by First State Bank of Uvalde.
First State Bank of Uvalde
Uvalde city leaders and the fellow community helped organize one of the funds.
The account is set up at First State Bank of Uvalde. Donations are accepted at any branch location, Make checks payable to “Robb School Memorial Fund” Checks can also be mailed to: 200 E. Nopal St., Uvalde, TX 78801
