Other ways to help
Sunnybrook Hospital so far has treated 10 of the victims. It has made a call for blood donations since it has the Toronto regional outpost of the Canadian Blood Services. To donate, you can visit blood.ca to find the nearest clinic.
Also, a community-focused outreach group, Canada Zakat, has set up a GoFundMe account for victims of the attack. The funds raised will help pay the funeral expenses for the families of the victims.
