Seward Market donations tallied

If you google the Seward Market shootings now, you won't find any recent links. Crime happens and then people move on.

But not in Seward. Here our thoughts are still with the families of the victims. I am proud to say that True Thai's customers donated over $600 to the memorial fund set up by Seward Redesign.

I think of you as my family now, and I am very proud of how we responded to this terrible tragedy. This is a good neighborhood, and recent events have proven that to me. The people of Seward did not hide in their homes after the shooting. Hundreds of you came out for the candlelight vigil, and hundreds more dropped money into collection boxes for the families.

I thank you on behalf of the victims' families, and I thank you on behalf of True Thai Restaurant where we are proud to be a part of the Seward community.
