But after the terrible incident, several local organizations and individuals quickly took action to raise funds for the victims after a red Ford Escape drove through the Waukesha Christmas Parade, leaving at least six dead and dozen injured.

Moments after hearing about the tragedy on Sunday, said Amy Lindner, the president and CEO of United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha Countycalled her family members.

“This is the parade I grew up with,” said Lindner.

After making sure her family was safe, she called again.
