More than two weeks since the Tucson shooting at Safeway, the Tucson Tragedy Victims Fund has received $15,000 in donations.
"It's a good start. We're expecting more to come in," said Carole Gaxiola, director of Homicide Survivors, the organization that started the fund.
While the Christina Taylor Green Memorial Fund has received more than 900 contributions, organizers are not releasing how much money the fund has collected, due to family wishes, said Evan Mendelson, vice president of donor relations for the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.
The Tucson Community Food Bank has collected $92,000 in donations made in Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' name, while the local chapter of the American Red Cross has received $50,000 in donations. The Gabriel Zimmerman Scholarship Fund has raised about $20,000 so far.
