In my post on the young girl who was gang raped victim during her high school's homecoming dance in Richmond, California, Lara Colvin left the following information in comments about how to help the victim.
If you would like to donate to the fund specifically set up to benefit this young woman and her family, you may send a check to Richmond High School, 1250 23rd St., Richmond, CA 94804. Checks should be made out to "Richmond High School Student Fund" with "Sex assault victim" on the memo line.As I said in my post on the poem "Daughter, Our Daughter," this horrific crime has shaken up not only me but people across the nation. CBS news reports the suspects wore bullet proof vests at their arraignment.
You may also want to consider a contribution to your local rape crisis center since rapes take place every day in communities—both big and small—all over our country.
