Trust fund started for family of Shyanne Charles

Neighbours who miss Shyanne Charles have started a trust fund to help her family. They are hoping it will pay for the funeral of the West Hill girl, 14 when she was killed at the Danzig Street mass shooting on July 16. Community members who started the Shyanne Charles Trust Account, which was opened last week, also help the fund will sustain her mother and siblings through future needs, such as counselling. Anyone can donate to the account (#1328018) at any branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. The East Scarborough Storefront helped start the account and Scarborough East Councillor Paul Ainslie, whose ward is across the street from the shooting scene praised it as a worthy cause. “I am very proud of the families which make up the fabric of our community. One of our families needs your help,” he said in a letter.;
