WICHITA, Kan. (AP) About $8,300 has been donated to the family of an 8-year-old Wichita girl killed by a stray bullet.
The Wichita Eagle reports that a motorcycle group called the Veteran of Foreign Wars Post 3115 Riders collected the money during a fundraiser Saturday. Group president Terry Fletcher says the community “did an amazing job.”
The money will pay for more than $4,500 in funeral expenses for Kimbra Moore and help her family. Kimbra’s mother was laid off from her job after missing work when her sleeping daughter was struck and killed last month.
A 24-year-old man is charged in Kimbra’s death.
Contributions for the family can still be made into a fund at Emprise Bank. Checks should be made out to the Kimbra Rose Moore Memorial Fund.
