Local organization raises enough funds to help honor high school victims

Local organization raises enough funds to help honor high school victims

Another local non -profit is also asking for help from the community to honor the families, and they got it.

Compassion Highway Project asked the public to help them raise $290, so they can gift each family a large framed photo of their daughters.

During our 5 o'clock newscast on Wednesday, Ron Burgess, a Broker at REMAX in Medford called News 10 and said he wanted to donate $300.

"Although they were Eagle Point students, it affected all of Southern Oregon," said Burgess. "These young ladies having scholarships to go to college,cut down in the prime of their lives and their families, you always hear a parent should never have to bury a child."

Compassion Highway Project confirms the costs have been covered.

"It broke my heart, said founder Melissa Mayne. "I have little ones and it pulled on my heartstrings and when I saw those pictures, I thought Kayla just, that was a beautiful tribute to them and I thought it would be something so special for each family to have."

Compassion Highway was able to raise about $800 altogether, the money not used for the pictures will go to the girl's families.
