The fire in Paradise CA - donations request
Thu, Nov 15 11:39am
Chadbourne Elementary

Hi Dear Chadbourne Families,


As we all try to navigate through this smoky air quality from the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA we just learned that one of our former Noon Duty  employees, Rochelle Prest, and her husband lost their home.  They retired to the town of Paradise a couple of years ago.  Rochelle's daughter, Stephanie Cabral, is an amazing Paraeducator at Chadbourne. Many of our students know, Miss Stephanie.  Chadbourne staff members are bringing in donations for Stephanie's Mom, Rochelle, and their neighbors.  Rochelle's entire neighborhood is completely gone.  Some of our community members have called asking if they can leave donations here at Chadbourne.  Yes! We will be accepting donations of water, blankets, gifts cards, food, clothing, necessary items until 1:05 Friday afternoon.  These donations will be delivered by Stephanie  to Rochelle and her community on Saturday morning.  Stephanie will be driving her pick-up truck - so she won't be able to take items that are too big. 


There are many other ways to donate items - and we know that the entire area is in need so anything, in any way, would be appreciated.


Thank you, Chadbourne Community,


Trudy Wentworth

School Secretary
