How can you help? – LV Fire Relief

How can you help? – LV Fire Relief

If you are looking for a way to help families who were impacted by the Woolsey Fire please go to www.LVFireRelief.org to help with monetary donations. 100% of all donations received will go directly to the affected families. LVFR was started by parents in our district who teamed up with the YMCA to help make an instant 501(c)3! Therefore, all donations are tax-deductible and families will not be taxed on the contributions they receive. The school district is also in support of LVFR. At this time the donation center is currently in need of luggage and medium or large storage bins with lids. Due to the overwhelming response, they can no longer accept clothing and gift cards. Even if you cannot help financially, you can help by telling all your friends and families from out of the area that www.LVFireRelief.org is the best place to donate at.
