El PaSO STRONG

A week has gone by since our city was faced with a horrible tragedy.

22 people have died and 25 are injured. Our community mourns for all those affected.

We have seen an overwhelming amount of support from across the nation. Thank you to every individual, local business owner, corporation, and foundation who has donated to the El Paso Shooting Victims’ Fund.

We are working with the Family Assistance Center, County and City of El Paso, Paso Del Norte Foundation, Consulate of Mexico, and other supporting non-profit organizations to try to help in any way we can.

Our short-term goal has been to use the funds to assist the families and victims by paying for funeral, travel, and basic need expenses.

Long term, we know that our community will need to heal as a collective and we plan to address the trauma we have suffered as a whole. Our job is to listen carefully and respond thoughtfully.

In addition, we have established the El Paso Victims’ Education Fund - a scholarship fund for the children of those shot and injured or killed by the shooter on August 3, 2019. Your contribution will join others in providing tuition assistance and related expenses to college or university, or an established trade or vocational school. You can donate here: epcf.org/ELPyouth

Thank you for your support. We will continue to rise as a community and remain #elpasoSOstrong.
