WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Donations are being sought for a middle school counselor who underwent a quadruple amputation after a shooting at a south-central Kansas store.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1KVdQru ) reports that about $28,000 has been raised so far for Julie Dombo. The 61-year-old was wounded in August during a robbery at a Derby AT&T; store.

Because of oxygen deprivation to her limbs while in the hospital, her hands and legs required amputation in early September.

A blood drive was held in Dombo’s honor on Labor Day, and a run/walk was held on Sunday as a fundraiser for her medical bills as well. Money also is being raised through a GoFundMe page.
