CU sets fund for Sikh temple shooting victims families
WAUKESHA, Wis. (8/8/12)--A West Milwaukee, Wis.-based credit union, has set up a relief fund for victims of Sunday's Oak Creek Sikh temple shootings and their families.

Six worshipers, including the founder of the temple, and the gunman died in the Sunday morning attack, which received national media attention. Three other people, including a police officer, were critically injured (USA Today Aug. 7).  

Local media reported several community nonprofits and individuals are mobilizing efforts to assist the Sihk community in the aftermath.

"This incident has shaken not only the Oak Creek community, but the Milwaukee metro community and the state," Steve Wesson, president/CEO of the $232.2 million asset Guardian CU, told the Waukesha Freeman (Aug. 7).  The credit union has a branch located in Oak Creek, Wis., which is a suburb near of Milwaukee.

"We are part of this community and our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to those affected by this senseless crime," Wesson told the publication.

Community members can stop by Guardian CU's Waukesha branch or any of its other branches in southeastern Wisconsin to donate to the fund. All donations collected by the credit union will go directly to the Sikh temple, Wesson said.

Guardian CU said it will match the first $2,000 raised for the fund.
