CASS COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- In the wake of tragedy, Cass County is more united than ever before.
Emotions ran high at Logansport high school Friday night as first responders to all the incidents were recognized.
The recently founded group called #WeAreCassCounty announced over $13,000 have been raised through t-shirt sales. The group's original goal was $6,000.
The money is being distributed evenly between the families involved in these tragic incidents.
Tami McMahan is part of #WeAreCassCounty and said she's not sure what will happen with the group from here.
"We know that we don't want it to stop here," McMahan said. "We know that it's not just about t-shirts and it's not just about a logo and it's not just about a brand. We want this to become something that lives on throughout our community."
She hopes this group can become another way to help build and unite the county.
"It is so amazing tonight to go out in the Berry Bowl and see all four teams from our county have on the same shirt. That represents unity and I don't think that's something that has ever happened before," McMahan said. "And to see the kids come together, if they can do that as kids, they can do that as an adult and that's our future."
The online shop is still open to purchase #WeAreCassCounty t-shirts until December 26th. Click here to purchase.
