An anonymous member of the Milwaukee-area community will give up to $10,000 to match funds that are being collected to benefit the children orphaned by a tragic murder-suicide that took place earlier this month.

Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan, who helped start the charity drive, said he was contacted by the anonymous donor Monday morning. The donor hoped to inspire other members of the community to come forward with gifts to aid the three young children, who lost both of their parents in a violent confrontation early on December 19 in the 1600 block of S. 21st St.

“I am truly inspired at the generosity and humility of this anonymous donor,” Alderman Donovan said. “These three kids lost both of their parents in the days leading up to Christmas, and it’s up to the community now to see to it that they are taken care of in the years that they have ahead of them.”

“I hope that other members of the community are as inspired as I am, and that they will also choose to give generously to this worthy cause.” Donations can be made at any branch of the Tri-City National Bank under the Jefferson Orphan Fund.
