Stillwater Strong Distributes Funds
In March of 2016 the Foundation’s Stillwater Strong Committee began distributing funds to the victims and families of those tragically killed and injured at the 2015 OSU Homecoming parade. By the end of April 2016, the committee had distributed 100% of the $483,000 donated to assist victims with recovery and medical expenses. The injured included 43 victims most of whom were treated and released from Stillwater Medical without being sent a bill for services. However, nearly half of those victims had serious injuries and five were critical. Four victims passed away from the injuries they sustained.
Nearly 60 public, private and civic fundraising events were tracked by the Stillwater Medical Foundation to ensure the highest level of integrity in the donation transaction process. The Foundation absorbed all administrative costs associated with staff salaries, credit card donations, postage and even legal fees as another way to pay it forward. A special thanks to the Stillwater Strong Committee members and other volunteers who worked countless hours ensuring that matters were handled efficiently and with diligent care.
Future Gifts to Stillwater Strong
If you would still like to give in honor or memory of those affected, we would suggest a donation to the Stillwater Medical Emergency Room where so many received treatment that day.
Thank you for your continued dedication to our community.
