I’ve been doing a lot of pontificating for the last 48 hours, but I’m climbing off my soapbox (temporarily). I know when tragedies occur, whether they’re man-made or not, we all feel so helpless. Here are a few ways to help victims and their families from this past weekend’s violence as well as last week’s Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting.
