Donations are being collected for the family of Carol Glover, who died Monday after being trapped on the smoke-filled Metro train near L’Enfant Plaza.

A fund in Glover’s name was started this morning on the site GoFundMe. The site had raised $2,782 toward a $10,000 goal after five hours.

“Funds donated here will be directed towards funeral or general unplanned expenses,” the site says.

Glover, a 61-year-old Alexandria resident, was a mother of two adult sons and a grandmother. She attended Capitol Hill Baptist Church, the fundraising site says. She graduated from Eastern Senior High School and won her company’s employee of the year award last month, NBC 4 reported.

“She leaves behind a family devastated by this tragic and sudden loss,” the site says.

Jessica Prol, who started the fund, did not immediately respond to an inquiry.
