In a Facebook post, officials said people can share cards and letters to the families and the people hurt. The messages can be dropped off at 300 Dunlap Rd.

At Oxford Bank, a fund was created alongside the Oxford Downtown Development Authority and Oxford Public Schools. All donations will go to families and victims first, then be used to create a memorial.
