We have seen lots of good will pouring out of people and businesses in the aftermath of the Nov. 30 shootings/killings at Oxford High School.
Two local financial institutions, Oxford Bank and Genisys Credit Union want to warn folks to be careful when donating to online accounts. Be careful and make sure you know where you are donating to.
We have vetted three Go Fund Me accounts, from the OHS Class of 2010-11 and organized by Laura Ferguson, you can go to https://gofund.me/94c97f83; here is another out of Oxford and organized by Joe Farrell, https://gofund.me/fe2f13bb.
