On this Giving Tuesday, please consider giving to the families, teachers, educators and students affected by the #campfire. Approximately 5000+ students and 500+educators lost their home and/or are displaced. Some of our very own FUSD staff have loved ones that lost everything in the fire.
The Fremont Education Foundation (FEF) is organizing a monetary donation drive through their website from now until December 17th. Our FUSD community can make a donation at FEF Supports Butte Schools Strong. The funds raised will go to the families of FUSD staff who are affected as well as go to Butte County schools to rebuild the Visual and Performing Arts, Technology, Ag Ed, Sports, Academics and everything Preschool to 12th grade.
Additionally, FEF is collecting letters to Butte Schools Strong- Preschool to High School children and teachers. Throw in a drawing and/or take a picture for them. Let them know where you are from and send a positive message. They will post them up at their new Butte Schools wall to share with the community there and on line! Send your letters and drawings from students (no larger than 8.5 x 11) to Sherea Westra @ Niles Elementary School. All letters must be received no later than Monday, December 17 so that the Fremont Education Foundation can send the donations and letters all together on December 19th before the Winter Break.
If you have any questions, please contact Fahria Khan, FEF President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sherea Westra, FUSD Teacher and FEF Treasurer, at email@example.com.
