"Overwhelming" is how the family is describing the outpouring of support to a Bend family recovering from the tragic shooting death of a mother and a five year old girl. Two year Grant is said to be making a miraculous recovery. The children's father, Chuck Still is a route driver for Pepsi of Bend. The company has set up accounts at Bank of the Cascades and Selco Credit Union for donations to help the family. “Our customers wanted to reach out and help. So we created some little certificates that people can purchase for a dollar, or whatever purchase amounts our customers want to do. Then they write their name and message and it gets put up on the wall.” Betsy Skovborg with Pepsi of Bend says more than $2000 has been raised thus far. The money will help with living and other expenses as Grant recovers. Pepsi is also looking at the possibility of stepping up an educational fund for the boy. Meanwhile, neighbors and friends have decorated the still home in northwest Bend with Christmas decorations as a memorial.
