FORT MYERS, Fla. -- In a show of solidarity this week, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation has partnered with the City of Fort Myers, and the United Way to open the "Together Fort Myers Fund."

Its goal is to help the victims, families, and those affected by the deadly shootings at Club Blu early Monday morning, which left two teens dead and more than a dozen others injured.

All funds donated will be used to provide support services to those affected.
