(KSL News) People continue to raise and donate funds to the families of the men killed in the Crandall Canyon Mine.

About $540,000 in donations has been disbursed to the families of the nine men, and at least $146,000 is still in bank and credit union accounts.

The funds originally were set up to benefit the families of the six trapped miners but were expanded to also help the families of the three men killed during the rescue efforts.

Price Mayor Joe Piccolo said Friday he and his wife recently have established a scholarship fund designed to benefit the children of all coal miners in the area.
