Clearfield County community takes action to help victim’s family
OSCEOLA MILLS – Since the fatal shooting, one woman remains in the hospital in critical condition.
Many people in Osceola Mills and the surrounding area are coming together to lend a helping hand to Victoria Shultz's sister.
"When we saw members of the community talking about coming together to do something for the family, we saw that this was the perfect opportunity to get in and try to help our community," organizer Thor Marlow said.
Residents in Osceola Mills and surrounding areas have taken action to give back to the victim's family.
Jessica Schultz is the third woman injured in the shooting and she remains in the hospital.
The community is working together to make sure her son, Gavin, has presents for Christmas.
"We said we'd take care of the toy drive and put the word out there and start accepting gifts," Marlow said.
Organizer Thor Marlow says the reaction from the community has been overwhelming. As soon as they made the announcement, toys started rolling in the door.
"The reaction of the community is just absolutely positive," Marlow said.
People interested in helping can drop off donations at Thunder Tats Studio in Philipsburg. Everyone is encouraged to lend a helping hand.
"I know a lot of people out there that would like to make a difference and they just don’t know how,” Marlow said. “Don't be afraid to step up and say, 'Hey I want to help.'
The toy drive will accept gifts from anyone up until Dec. 16th. They’re also accepting gifts for Gavin's mother, Jessica.
