FaithBridge United Methodist Church is currently accepting donations through its Samaritans Fund to support the family of Mitchell Trivette, who was killed July 26 in the incident that took the life of Deputy Mast.
Trivette, 33, was a self-employed carpenter and left behind a wife, daughter and son.
The family is currently working to secure housing, and FaithBridge United Methodist plans to use its Samaritans Fund to assist them in those efforts, according to the Rev. Marianne Romanat.
Anyone interested in donating can send a check payable to FaithBridge United Methodist Church with the memo line noted for “Samaritans Fund.”
