Two Metro Denver nonprofits are collecting donations in the name of Claire Davis, the sole victim shot December 13 by an armed student at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, the Denver Post reported Tuesday, December 17.

Davis, 17, was shot in the head by another student, Karl Pierson, who later committed suicide. She remains in critical and stable condition in a coma at Littleton Adventist Hospital.

At the request of her family, donations are being accepted in her name on the web pages of TLC Meals on Wheels and the Littleton Hospital Foundation.

TLC Meals on Wheels serves needy individuals in Centennial, Littleton, Englewood, Sheridan, west Arapahoe County and southeast Jefferson County. Its clientele includes elderly individuals and others with short-term hardship. “With the support of the Meals on Wheels program, older adults often remain independent in their homes for many years,” said the organization’s website.

The Littleton Hospital Foundation is a nonprofit, faith-based fundraising organization that supports Littleton Adventist Hospital. On its Facebook page, the organization reported December 17 that $1,500 had been donated for local youth mental health awareness and “for support programs in Claire’s behalf.”

It also reported the TLC Meals on Wheels had received $700 through the appeal.
