A Delaware County, PA. family who lost their daughter and sister over the summer in a traffic accident at the Jersey shore will announce a foundation in her memory later this week, hoping that some good will come from their tragic loss.

Casey Feldman would have been a senior at Fordham University this year but her young life was cut short in July when she was killed in a crosswalk while walking to her summer job in Ocean City.

Her family is establishing the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation, which according to her father Joel Feldman, will help students and causes that were close to his daughter’s heart:

“Including helping those were homeless, hungry, those afflicted with HIV on the one hand and the other part of it is helping students through various scholarships.”

One of those scholarships will be given to a graduating senior at Springfield High School in Delaware County.

Scholarships will also be established at Fordham and the University of Colorado where her brother attends college.

The family will announce the foundation and the scholarships at the high school this Friday.
