A GoFundMe was set up for the Schwartzenberger family. Initially, a goal of $40,000 was set. But as of Thursday, it totaled more than $80,000.
And a mealtime fundraiser for the Alfin family raised nearly $30,000.
The FBI Agents Association Membership Assistance Fund has set up a GoFundMe page for the families of both agents. They have set a goal of $500,000.
“Special Agents Schwartzenberger and Alfin devoted their careers to capturing criminals who sexually abuse children. These selfless warriors fought day in and day out to protect innocent children who cannot fight to protect themselves. Crimes against children is a violation so dark that most people are afraid to talk about, and only the strongest among us can handle it,” said Jesse Kranz who organized the fundraiser.
