UPDATE 7: The medical and memorial funds set up by the WCC have now been closed as of October 2013. Many thanks to all that donated. 100% of the funds received were given to the Schulte family.
UPDATE 6: On Tuesday, April 2nd, from 7-9PM at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center, the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association hosted a community meeting about last Monday’s tragedy. There were speakers-a-plenty and many local and state officials present to listen in. The Ravenna Blog live-blogged from it. (Live Blog link)
UPDATE 5: We are so grateful and thankful to live in a community willing to donate generously for a family in as much need as the Schulte’s. Their need is great, so continued fund raising is important to help on their road to recovery. As of today, we’ve raised about $10,000 for Karina and Elias’s medical fund and about $1,000 to Dennis & Judy Schulte’s memorial fund through the ProjektKarma and personal donations made to HomeStreet Bank. Additionally, the other medical fund created by Karina’s friend has raised more than $40,000. Thank you for your continued donations as they have a long road ahead of them. Your funds are already making a difference for the family.
UPDATE 4: A Meal Schedule has been created to help Dan Schulte and his family over the coming weeks with so many people in town and so much time spent at the hospital. If you’d like donate food, prepared meals, snacks, or gift cards to support the Schulte family, please sign up for the Meal Schedule or email » Jess.
UPDATE 3: A growing list of businesses are donating food or gift cards to the family. Special thanks to the following businesses!
The customers at the Van Gogh Coffeehouse collected $786.48 in tips from Friday-Saturday to donate to the Schulte Family!
The Shultes, victims of DUI accident last week, are in our thoughts. Sand Point is accepting donations for the family, matching up to $1000.

- MONDAY – April 1st, from 4-5PM: There will be a Memorial Walk for anyone interested. Mayor McGinn will join us in our walk from Top Pot Doughnuts (on 35th Ave NE at NE 70th Street) to Eckstein and back. You are encouraged to bring flowers to remember Judy and Dennis or canned food (to be donated to the University Food Bank).
- TUESDAY – April 2nd, 7-9PM: The Ravenna-Bryant Community Association is hosting a community at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center gymnasium (6535 Ravenna Ave NE). The following have confirmed their attendance: Peter Hahn (SDOT Director), Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, the Executive Director and Associate Administrator for Harborview Medical Center, criminal and civil attorneys from the City Attorney’s Office, and a representative of the Seattle Police Dept will be there. Other City staff/departments may come as well but have yet to confirm. The meeting is open to everyone.
The Wedgwood Community Council has established two funds at the Homestreet Bank – Wedgwood Branch office. Thanks to a crowd-sourcing guru from the neighborhood, we’ve created an easier venue for those looking to contribute to the Schulte family on Projekt Karma. Please, please, please help us spread the word about this so that we can really contribute to the grieving family. Also, friends of Karina’s have also set up a fund through FundRazr and have agreed to let us spread the word about their fund too. The need is great. Needless to say that everything raised will be given to the family.
You can now click on the links below to access the giving page for each fund or deposit checks personally.
For more information on making a deposit you can call this branch of Homestreet Bank directly at 206-525-2840.
