Christina Taylor Green Memorial Fund

by Kevin Goldstein

All of us were horrified by the tragedy that occurred in Tucson on Saturday, and as many of you already know, it affected the scouting community as well. Christina Taylor Green, the nine-year-old girl killed in the massacre, was the daughter of Los Angeles Dodgers cross-checker John Green, and the grand-daughter of Dallas Green, the former manager and big league executive.

The Dodgers have released a statement detailing a fund set up in honor of Christina, and we wanted to spread the word, so here it is in it's entirety.


In response to the overwhelming offers of support for the family of Los Angeles Dodgers scout John Green, the club today created an email address where family, friends and members of the community can share their thoughts and feelings on the tragic passing of Christina Taylor Green. Those memories, thoughts and condolences, which can be sent to greenfamily@dodgers.com, will be compiled in a memorial book for the family.

Letters can be sent via mail to: Dodger Stadium, c/o the Green Family, 1000 Elysian Park Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90090

John Green and his family have also created a charitable memorial fund to honor the life and memory of Christina, which will be held by the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.

“Our family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for our sweet Christina,” said Green. “This memorial fund will ensure her legacy for the children in our community.”

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Christina Taylor Green may do so by:

Logging on to the website of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona at www.cfsoaz.org and clicking on the link to the Christina Taylor Green Memorial Fund

Contacting the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona by email at christinataylorgreenmemorial@cfsoaz.org, or by calling (520) 545-0313.

Checks may be sent to:

The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona
In Memory of Christina Taylor Green
2250 E. Broadway Boulevard
Tucson, AZ 85719

A public memorial service for Christina is scheduled for this Thursday, January 13 at 1 p.m. at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, which is located at 8650 N. Shannon Road in Tucson, AZ.
