How to Help Victims of Poway Synagogue Shooting

The San Diego community is joining together to help raise funds for the victims and their families

As the San Diego community and many others are mourning the tragic event that happened at the Chabad of Poway synagogue on Saturday, they are also joining together to help raise funds and show support for the victims and their families.

Here is a list of community events and fundraisers being held:

  • Pizza Studio in Poway will be hosting a “Together Tuesday” fundraiser, from 2-6 p.m. where 50 percent of its proceeds will go to the victims and their families.
  • Kaminski's Sport Lounge and BBQ is holding a fundraiser Friday, May 3, according to the business's Facebook Page. The restaurant will be donating 20 percent of their proceeds on Friday to Chabad of Poway.
  • Chabad of Poway is hosting its own fundraiser to "help recover from tragedy" that is now active on their website.
  • A GoFundMe page was created Saturday to raise money to help pay for "any necessary medical operations for the victims, funeral services, synagogue reparations or anything else the synagogue would need assistance with."
A city-wide prayer vigil was held Sunday night at Valle Verde Community Park at 7 p.m. where Rabbi Goldstein, a victim in the shooting and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus were in attendance.
