    If you care to make a donation to the families of the Glock Employees injured in Monday's unfortunate accident, you may make a check or money order payable to Glock, Inc. and note employee donation on it, and mail to me. I'm not set up to accept Pay Pal. I will forward donations to Glock every Friday, and post a daily accumulated talley in this thread. I have started the ball rolling by mailing my check to Glock today. Glock will know that all donations are from the members of Glocktalk.

    The injured employees of the Warranty/Service Department are:
    Dan Williams, 54, Mableton, GA--critical
    Louise Williams, 56, Atlanta, GA--Stable
    David Barker, 23, Dallas, GA--treated and released.

    Mail to:

    Danny Ryan
    1130 Shorevue Circle
    Hardy, VA 24101-3658

    I will be forwarding payments to the accounting manager of Glock, Inc., via certified mail. I have no way of opening an account from 485 miles away.

    I've started the ball rolling with my personal contribution check for $150.00, mailed today.

    I will make the amount public. My records will be maintained in Lotus 1-2-3 format. Glock may confirm receipt if they wish.

    Thanks Danny; I just put my check in the mail box to you about 5 minutes ago. You should have it in a couple days if the Pony Express don't get tired. I appreciate they way in which you are handling it, this is the up front professional way things like this should be handled.

    Take care old friend and see you at Statesville.

    Danny has been around here since our posts were wearing diapers. :)

    There is no reason to doubt his honesty.

    I believe Dan W. is head of warranty or repair dept.

    I've spoken with him at length.

    Very nice guy!

    I hate to donate to a "slush fund" like this.

    $$ seems to get "lost in the transition".

    Danny, can you deposit into an acct in Smyrna?

    Has one been set up?

    There is not a way to 110% guarantee the funds will not be misused, however, making the checks payable to Glock and memoing them will help.

    Sometimes you just gotta believe that there are still honest people in the world.

    I feel pretty good about this one, especially the ones who take this seriously. The trolls ain't gonna see (or donate) any of the money.

    Maybe Glock will make the amount public?

    Just to clarify...I was not doubting Danny.

    I was attempting to reduce manonmars's apparent hesitation.

    Since this is now the "official" thread, I would like to paste the content from my post on GNG.

    Thanks. A check will be sent today.

    Between Danny and the Accounting Manager at Glock the money will go where it's supposed to. I know and trust both of them without reservation.

    You can trust DannyR, He is one of the best there is. But for the members that haven't been around long enough to get to know everyone here. I'm sure no one would be offended in any way if you sent it direct to Glock either. One way or the other its for a good cause.

    I'm sure that you could also make a donation at a GSSF match, if you are attending soon.

    In all honesty you have a better chance of your money getting to the right person in a timely manner by going through Danny. It will also be easier on Vicki if the funds are coming in through one person. The check is being made out to Glock so it won't be cashed or deposited until it gets there.
