The Hamilton community continues to show its support to the family of a stabbing victim.

14 year old Devan Selvey was killed in front of his high school in the east end of the city Monday afternoon.

A GoFundMe account has now raised close to $40,000 to help the family pay for the funeral for the boy described as quiet, kind and shy.

An event called the "Candlelight Vigil Against Bullying, Jealousy, Hatefulness and for Love & Peace" will be held between  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm in front of Sir Winston Churchill School tonight.

Organizers say it will be a peaceful memorial and time of solidarity.
