Two teenagers remain hospitalized after a Nov. 28 shooting at an Evanston gas station. Here’s how to donate to their families. 

Michael Jefferson’s 14-year-old daughter was shot in the head. He’s been at her bedside as she undergoes extensive treatment, and he’s unsure when he’ll be able to return to work, according to his GoFundMe statement. As a single father of five kids, he is asking for financial support.

A 17-year-old boy also remains hospitalized after the shooting. According to Rhonda Dennison’s GoFundMe, he underwent his first full day of physical and occupational therapy Monday and hopes to regain more movement through continuous therapy. His family is asking for financial assistance to offset the cost of his long-term medical care.
