In the wake of the recent tragic shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, many people are wondering what they can do to support the survivors. Reports indicate that 12 people were killed and roughly 22 were taken to various hospitals nearby.
According to the Red Cross, one of the biggest ways you can provide support is to give blood. Visit www.redcrossblood.org to find a donation center near you.
There is also a GoFundMe page where you can donate to support the victims and their loved ones. It was set up by the Westlake Village Rotary Unrestricted Charitable Foundation, a certified charity. So far, they've raised over $13,000, but they hope to reach their $50,000 goal over the next few days.
Another donation option is the Ventura County Community Foundation. They've coordinated with the City of Thousand Oaks to set up a victim relief and recovery fund. The donations go towards providing critical equipment and resources to those affected.
