REEDSBURG, Wis. (WMTV) -The community is still in shock from losing 13-year-old Evelyn Gurney after being struck and killed at her bus stop.

Since May 12, the community has been unrelenting in showing support for the Gurney family in their time of need. Tuesday is no different. The Culver’s located on the main drag in Reedsburg is asking everyone and anyone to join them in sending support.

All day Tuesday, Culver’s is donating 25% of all sales to the Gurney family.

”Knowing that the community–whatever the case may be—has each other’s back,” started Richie Strutz, owner/operator of the Reedsburg Culver’s. “I’ve been here for 30 years and nothing’s changed, if anything it’s gotten stronger.”

This fundraising efforts builds upon a number of growing memorials for Evelyn, marked by “EV 42″ found on windows, T-shirts, stickers, and photographs around Sauk Co.

The “Goals for Gurney” GoFundMe that Evelyn’s teammate started, has surpassed $96k as of Tuesday morning.

“This community you’ll see today, they will come out and I know they’ll come out big, I just want to say thank you to community, I can’t thank them enough,” said Strutz.
