Fund for freed woman in Ohio reaches $480,000

CLEVELAND — An official says a charity set up to help the three women freed from a decade of captivity in a Cleveland house has raised more than $480,000 so far.

Lynne Woodman of KeyBank tells The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer  that there have been more than 5,100 donations to what has been named the Cleveland Courage Fund. She says donations have come all 50 states and several foreign countries.

The money will go into four trust funds established for the victims.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — along with Berry’s 6-year-old child born in the house — were freed from the house on the city’s west side last week.

Ariel Castro, the man accused of kidnapping and raping them, remains jailed under a suicide watch.
