All of us at Midland Living Magazine are heartbroken over the senseless events that unfolded this past weekend. We know the Midland community is full of compassionate people who are always ready to assist those in need. If you want to help those who have been affected but just aren't sure what to do, we have compiled a list of verified donation campaigns, via GoFundMe, where even the smallest donation would be greatly appreciated.

 James “Tom” Santana, ODESSA, TX

James was the OPD officer injured in the mass shooting. His injures aren’t critical but he is being treated in the hospital and has had surgery to remove bullet fragments.

All donations will go to his wife and family for medical and living expenses. 

Edwin Peregrino, ODESSA, TX

Edwin was a victim of the mass shooting in Odessa. He had moved to San Antonio just two weeks ago, and came back to Odessa for the holiday to visit family.  He and his brother-in-law stepped outside in their own backyard and we’re both shot. He was SO FULL OF LIFE! Every room he walked in, he always had that room lit up with a smile and laugh. He made a difference in every soul he met; he made a mark.

Rudy was brutally shot and killed while driving home from work in the recent Odessa active shooting. Rudy was a father and friend whose life was ended way too soon.  Any donations would be very appreciated to help this family.
