Texas and American Flag blowing in the wind

At Plan B, we cannot begin to express our sadness for the 19 children and two teachers killed in the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and our condolences for their loved ones.

To help raise awareness and provide assistance to the victims, their families, and the greater Uvalde community, we’ve compiled this list of ways to offer support for Robb Elementary and those impacted by this heartbreaking tragedy.

GoFundMe Fundraising

Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe created a verified way to donate directly to family members of elementary school shooting victims.

Robb Elementary Memorial Fund

The First State Bank of Uvalde opened up an account for the families of Robb Elementary. All First State Bank locations are accepting donations. Make checks payable to the “Robb School Memorial Fund.” Mail checks to 200 E Nopal St. Uvalde, TX 78801.

League of United Latin American Citizens

League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is a grassroots civil rights organization, providing support to disadvantaged Hispanic communities. According to LULAC, 90% of Robb Elementary School students identify as Hispanic and are largely economically disadvantaged. They are currently collecting donations to help the families of victims and survivors.

Donate Blood to Victims

The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center and University Health are asking for blood donations for the survivors of the Uvalde shooting. The country has encountered blood shortages for the past two years and now more than ever, it is important to donate. 

If you do live in Texas, you can make an appointment by visiting the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center or University Health website.
