It’s been a month and a half since the horrific school shooting in Pennsylvania. Five students were severely injured in the shooting. One of the students has been able to return to school full time. Two have returned part time. One student is in the hospital with severe head wounds. They hope she will be home by Christmas. The fifth student is semi-comatose. She may never recover.
The girls have incurred huge medical bills. Some need further surgery and most will need ongoing medical care. Others in the community will need psychological counselling.
The Nickel Mines Accountability Committee is overseeing the donations that have poured in. $3.2 million has been collected so far. This money will be used to pay medical bills, provide transportation, and for counselling services.
The committee is also looking after the family of the gunman. They will provide support where need. He left behind a wife and three kids.
