Greater Douglas United Way Launches Website for Giving features official merchandise with 100% donation to relief fund 

Roseburg, OR (October 5, 2015) — Greater Douglas United Way has launched a website – - to focus donations for the recovery effort from last week’s shooting at Umpqua Community College. 

Within hours of the tragedy, Greater Douglas United Way and Umpqua Bank opened the Umpqua Community College Family Relief Fund account to collect donations. 

Since Thursday, the Umpqua Community College Foundation has been added as a contributing member of the account, which has been renamed the UCC Strong Fund. 

While Greater Douglas United Way is the fiscal agent for donations, a committee will be assembled to determine how the funds are distributed. 

“So many fundraisers are collecting money to help the people harmed by the attack,” United Way Executive Director Bryan Trenkle said, “we want them to know they can deposit donations to the UCCStrong Fund through our website and all the money deposited will go to the families who have been affected.” 

In addition to a ‘Donate Now’ button, is also offering official #UCCStrong t-shirts for sale with 100 percent of proceeds going to the UCC Strong Fund. 

Give, Advocate and Volunteer…LIVE UNITED. #UCCStrong
