Durham Unified Fire Relief Fund

$3,895 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 4 months
Created November 13, 2018
We are all deeply saddened by the devastation our county has endured over the past few days and have learned that there are many Durham Unified students and staff who have lost their homes. In an effort to help them through this difficult time, the Durham Parent, Teacher, Student Organization is starting a gift card drive and online fundraiser.  We believe this is the biggest need for affected families right now. It is our goal to distribute funds and gift cards during the first week of December. All funds raised will be distributed equitably among the families who have lost homes. Together We Make a Difference! 

Durham PTS has established the DUSD Fire Relief Fund at Tri Counties Bank in Durham. You may donate using this online fundraiser through GoFundMe or by bringing a check into the Durham Branch of Tri Counties Bank. Thank you so much for your support, we truly appreciate it.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Durham PTS is working closely with school administrators to establish a list of those affected by the loss of their home. Please email or message DES PTS if you are in need of support.

Camp Fire Relief Fund Update: Shortly after the Camp Fire wrecked havoc upon Butte County, Durham Unified PTS rallied our community to support the families and staff from our District who were displaced by the fire. A GoFundMe Campaign and a gift card drive were coordinated and an account was established at Tri Counties Bank for local donations. As the days went by, the list of those affected grew to nearly 40 - many lost everything while some have homes that are still standing.

This week, funds were used to purchase gift cards to grocery stores, Costco, Target and Walmart and "care packages" valued between $250-$300 were distributed to each of our Durham Unified families affected by the fire.

Thank you to those who helped raise funds and spread the word. Support came from Coast to Coast and our hope is that it provided some amount of relief to those who received it. Offers of support are still coming in...from monetary donations to supplies and volunteers, Durham Unified PTS will work alongside administrators to assess the need of our school community and help coordinate the ongoing efforts.

If you or someone you know is still interested in donating, the GoFundMe campaign is still active and the DUSD Fire Relief Fund is open for deposits at the Durham Branch of Tri Counties Bank. Monetary donations and gift cards can also be mailed or dropped off to any of the school offices in DUSD or to the District office. Checks are payable to Durham PTS.
