Share Your Story: Remembering the kindness after the UCC tragedy

January 18, 2016: All of us were affected by the events that took place at Umpqua Community College on October 1, 2015. Our hearts broke for those who suffered. In the days following, many of us responded with generosity, compassion, and care. THE UMPQUA STORY PROJECT is gathering the stories and images of kindness. We want to know your story, so that we remember not only the suffering, but also the goodness that lives in this community.
