Victims' families and survivors of the Pulse massacre must file completed claim forms today (Monday, Sept. 12) for a part of the $23 million raised by the OneOrlando Fund.

Orlando city officials said earlier this month that more than 150 claim forms have already been submitted. Donors still have until the end of the business day on Friday, Sept. 23, to give money to the fund. 

You can download a claim form in English and in Spanish. Once the forms are filled out, they must be notarized and mailed to this address, with forms postmarked by Sept. 12. :
National Compassion Fund: OneOrlando Fund
c/o National Center for Victims of Crime
2000 M Street NW, Suite 480
Washington, DC 20036
Here's a list of local post offices and their latest times to get a postmark; in Orlando, your latest opportunity is by 9 p.m. at 10401 Post Office Blvd.
