The company where seven of the victims from Tuesday's plane crash worked has created a financial support system for victim's families.
Pebb Enterprises, based in Boca Raton, FL, set up a gofundme account to help the families with the costs involved in such a tragedy. The donations will help to provide assistance for travel needs, burial and funeral costs and to establish education funds for the benefit of the children of our lost loved ones.
The goal is $250,000 and as of Friday more than $20,000 has been raised.
Our hearts are broken with the news of the tragic accident that took the lives of two principals and five employees of Pebb Enterprises. We are shocked and deeply saddened for the families, colleagues and friends of those who perished. Our first priority is to give our fullest support to the family members and loved ones of our co-workers.
Pebb was scouting locations for shopping malls when the plane went down about two miles out from the airport.
The monies raised will be divided up among their families.
