This fire has traumatically affected our student, family, and staff population living in our now destroyed county.
This request is unusual since it is for our entire school population significantly impacted by the devastating fires still burning through our community.
Many students have need for food, clothing, hygiene, etc. that the Red Cross and other organizations are working to help supply. But as one of many teachers, we are hoping for donations to replace school supplies lost in the fires.
Hundreds of our students' homes and every scrap of their belongings have been destroyed by the multiple fires in Sonoma County.
The heart ache in our devastated community will take years to heal.
These school supplies will most certainly help ease one need of the thousands that our students carry. Paper, pencils, pens, binders, will help replace the items destroyed in the fires.
As one of their teachers, I know that we can move through this heart ache and utter despair we are all feeling. Your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated. These small items, in their normalcy, will help us to move forward.
