    Witnesses console each other near the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks, California, after a gunman opened fire at a packed event held by the bar, killing 12 people, on Nov. 8, 2018.

    Donations totaling $3.6 million have been distributed to survivors and family members of a dozen people killed last year at the Borderline Bar shooting.

    The Ventura County Community Foundation says thousands of people from around the world have hosted fundraisers for victims or donated directly to the foundation.

    The Los Angeles Times reports Tuesday that the funds were given to more than 200 people who lost loved ones in the November massacre at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks. Survivors also received money.

    Chief executive Vanessa Bechtel says the foundation is still collecting donations.
