Here Are All the Verified GoFundMe Accounts For the Victims in the Uvalde Shooting

The tiny town of Uvalde, Texas, is still reeling from the worst school shooting in a decade that left 19 children and two teachers dead. While the nation is mourning and bereaved parents look for answers about the police response, the funeral costs and hospital bills are piling up for families of the victims.

Sadly, in times like these, there is no shortage of opportunistic grifters willing to seize on the good intentions of charitable people by setting up fake accounts to collect money meant for victims.
