BOISE, Idaho — Micron announced it is matching all team member donations to a local fund benefiting survivors and the families of the two people killed in the shooting at Boise Towne Square.

"We are grateful to be part of the Boise community. Together, with respectful and open dialogue, we will overcome this tragedy," said Micron on Twitter.

Micron provided the following statement in addition to the series of tweets:

“All of us at Micron are deeply saddened by the senseless violence that unfolded at the Boise Towne Square Mall. Micron Foundation provides matching donations towards eligible charitable causes that Micron’s team members donate towards. In working with several contacts, we identified that TVL 11 Foundation Inc. – a charity created by the Treasure Valley Lodge #11 of Fraternal Order of Police– had set up a victims fund to support the families affected by the Boise Mall Shooting. While we can’t match donations to GoFundMe campaigns, the TVL 11 Foundation has been entrusted with managing the victim fund at ICCU and is committed to ensuring the funds are disbursed in a fair and transparent manner. Our internal campaign has raised just over $5,400 and we hope that this can help those affected.”

There are several donation funds set up for the general public, including GoFundMe memorial funds for Jo Acker and Roberto Padilla.

A donation account has been set up at ICCU and anyone can visit a branch and ask to donate to the "Victims of Boise Mall Shooting" account. The community resources page on the City of Boise website says all money will be given to the families of the deceased.
