Cardinal Newman High School
Cardinal Newman High School has seen almost half of its campus totally burned to the ground. Not only are there the challenges to the campus, but also for the teachers and families of the school. To help, you can access their donation page.
Justin Siena High School
Justin Siena High School in Napa, California, posted the following on their website. “We appreciate the incredible outreach of support and prayers from near and far. We are still in the process of assessing the needs within our immediate community, and conditions in the area are still in flux.
We know that there are those in our community who need help and those who have help to give.
We know that there are members of our community who have lost much and who are still evacuated and unsure of the condition of their home or neighborhood. Many in our community, both near and far, have been asking about a way to assist. To help our affected students and teachers get back to class and a feeling of normalcy as quickly as possible we have created a relief fund. This idea began as a ground-swell effort by a couple of students, and we are grateful to them for their compassion and quick action.
The strength of our community is a blessing always and felt especially during these challenging times. Thank you for all the messages and prayers for support.” Donations can be made by visiting their donation page.
