Response to the Roseburg Tragedy
We are deeply saddened by the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, on October 1, 2015. In the aftermath, individuals and organizations have reached out for advice on how to help the greater Roseburg community. Nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in Roseburg have been assisting from Day One. They have been assessing community needs and evaluating resources, so that they can coordinate support to a community that will need help in healing for many years.
Making a monetary donation is the best way to make a difference. You or your organization can help provide immediate and long-term assistance to the victims, as well the broader community of Roseburg. Monetary donations are a flexible, fast and effective way to help others. Monetary donations allow for use for whatever is most urgent. Its impact can be felt quickly – it requires no waiting on shipping or coordinating logistics. It makes aid effective by supplying exactly what is needed at the right time.
Our colleagues in Roseburg suggest that donations be made to the UCC Strong Victim Relief Fund, which is a coordinated effort between Umpqua Community College and the Greater Douglas United Way. These funds will be distributed to victims, families and those affected. The UCC Strong committee, which was developed with representatives from community organizations with ties to UCC, will oversee the distribution. Donate here.
