Fund for Buffalo shooting survivors is closer to distributing the money
BUFFAO, N.Y. (WHEC) — A fund created for the survivors of the Buffalo mass shooting is closer to distributing the money.
The National Compassion Fund, which created the 5/14 Survivors Fund along with Tops supermarket, released their final protocol on Tuesday detailing who is eligible. People have been deemed eligible for payment if they were physically in the grocery store, in the parking lot, or are a legal heir of those killed.
Applications will be available next month. The protocol’s release comes a month and a half after the shooting at Tops supermarket that killed ten, which police determined was motivated by racism.
You can still donate to 5/14 Survivors Fund and other charities created in response to the Buffalo shooting. Here’s a link to fundraisers verified as legitimate by GoFundMe.
The Chairs of the committee for the 5/14 Survivors Fund are the president of Buffalo’s NAACP chapter, Rev. Mark Blue and Paul Vukelic from the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
