A fundraiser has been launched to raise money to support the families of the victims and the survivors of the workplace shooting at the Roundy's distribution center in Oconomowoc.

The National Compassion Fund, dedicated to raising money for victims of mass crime, launched the GoFundMe fundraiserFriday. It has already raised $1 million of its $1.5 million goal - with the help of a $1 million donation from the Kroger Foundation.
