INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Hundreds gathered Sunday in Indianapolis to ride in memory of Angela Summers, who was shot and killed while delivering mail on the city’s east side back in April.
The Nation Association of Letter Carriers Local Branch 39 organized the event to raise money for Summers' 14-year-old daughter Kat. Since Summers was not working with the USPS long enough, she was not eligible to purchase group life insurance. So organizers decided to raise money to start a trust fund for her daughter. All the proceeds from the ride will go towards the fund.
“I could’ve never expected this turnout when I decided to do this. This is amazing,” said Steve Amrhein, vice president of NALC Local Branch 39.
Hundreds of riders traveled through Summers' old postal route and past the downtown post office.
Donations can be sent to NALC Branch 39 at 2211 E. 54th Street in Indianapolis. Note that the donation is for the Angela Summers Memorial Ride.
