On May 15th, a gunman entered a church luncheon hosted by the Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church (ITPC) and opened fire on the churchgoers inside, most of whom are elderly members of the congregation. The ITPC originally started in Irvine but had relocated to Laguna Woods, now worshiping within Geneva Presbyterian Church.
In the shooting, one person was killed and at least four others have been critically injured. The ITPC community is in shock and completely devastated by the loss and pain inflicted upon their church members.
This fundraiser is organized by members of ITPC who grew up attending this church and spent their childhoods with these families. We are heartbroken by the senseless violence and are reaching out to the internet for help. Our small Taiwanese congregation has put out love and kindness into the surrounding community for generations. During this time, our church, the victims, and their families need to focus on recovering from this tragedy. Please help us by giving to this campaign, of which 100% of the proceeds will go to ITPC and the families of the victims to aid in their journey of healing.
