Lady Gaga to Fund Classroom Needs in Gilroy, Other Communities Affected by Mass Shootings

BY CBS STAFF • August 10, 2019

Lady Gaga announced this week that her Born This Way Foundation will fully fund 162 school classroom projects in communities affected by recent mass shootings, including in Gilroy.

The singer-songwriter posted Friday on Facebook that she was trying to cope with emotions following the violence and was saddened for families of those who lost loved ones.

“In this moment, I want to channel my confusion, frustration and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves.”

The performer’s Born This Way Foundation is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to fully fund 23 classroom project needs in Gilroy, 14 in Dayton, Ohio and 125 in El Paso, Texas.

On the DonorsChoose site, educators post classroom project requests that donors can choose to support.

An attack on Sunday in Dayton killed 10 people including the gunman and injured more than two dozen others. In El Paso, 22 people were killed and 24 were injured on Aug. 3. On July 28, four people were killed including the gunman and 13 were injured at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
