A NOTE ON THANKFULNESS AND THE FIRES
Our hearts go out to everyone who has suffered losses in the Camp Fire. We in the Bay Area may be suffering from the poor air quality, but we are grateful to still generally have somewhere to lay our heads at night. If you or someone you love has not been so fortunate, please know that the Little Wonders community is here for you to lean on. Do not hesitate to reach out to your Board, teachers, or classmates if you are in need. We are thankful for every member of our community, and hope that you and yours have a safe and smoke-free Thanksgiving.
If you are looking for something to do to help those affected by the Camp Fire, the Red Cross and the North Valley Community Foundation are suggesting that financial contributions are the best way to help while individual needs are still evolving. Red Cross information is at www.redcross.org or 1-800-733-2767 and North Valley Community Foundation is at www.nvcf.org or 1-530-891-1150.
