South Fork High School Donates $8000 of Football Gear to Santa Rosa School Devastated by Wildfire
South Fork High School recently donated 15 sets of football gear to a school in Santa Rosa that was damaged in one of the recent wildfires.
The Tubbs Fire, which is believed to be the most destructive wildfire in state history, burned 36,807 acres, damaged 5,643 structures and killed at least 21 people last month, according to CAL FIRE.
During the fire, the Roseland Collegiate Prep Middle/High School campus was severely damaged, and students and staff have had to move to temporary locations because they can’t return to their original campus.
In order to help out the school in need, South Fork High School donated an estimated $8,000 worth of football gear.
Here’s the letter the Roseland School District sent in response to South Fork’s donation:
Thank you very much for your donation of 15 sets of football gear (approximate value $8000) for the students of Roseland Collegiate Prep. Your generous gift will help to support our schools and their students as they recover from the devastating wild fires in Santa Rosa, CA.
Roseland Collegiate Prep Middle/High School is home to over 430 students. Their campus was severely damaged in the fires on October 10th, 2017. In addition, there are multiple students and teachers that were displaced or have lost their homes as a result of this terrible natural disaster. Because students and staff cannot return to the original RCP campus, RCP students and staff has moved to temporary school homes on our other elementary school campuses as we try to figure out what we will do for the future. We are determined to provide normalcy in their lives again and give our students a safe place to learn.
This year, RCP will graduate its first class seniors. These seniors are currently applying for colleges and scholarships: and despite this major community setback, they are working hard to make sure that they are still able to reach their dreams of a college education. For most of them, our seniors will be the first in their families to attend college. Your donation will help us to support the students and make sure that their college dreams are achieved.
We are grateful for your support and generosity.
If you’d like to donate supplies, such as scientific calculators, graphing calculators, chromebooks, pencils, paper, notebooks, etc., the school has asked that you contact Jenn Del Rosario, Roseland Community Relations Coordinator, at email@example.com.
