Please Help Yara Choaa Rebuild!

Yara Choaa is a beloved preschool and Arabic language teacher at Prince William Academy in Lake Ridge, VA.  She is a dedicated teacher and colleague, universally loved by coworkers, parents, and students.  

Sadly, On May 27th, 2014, a four-alarm fire in Lorton, VA destroyed the condo complex where she and her husband lived. Thankfully, they were not hurt.  But along with all their treasured possessions and personal mementos that reminded them of times past and family far and near, they lost all of their household goods, all of their clothes, all of their furniture.  They lost everything they owned.

Please help this wonderful, loving, and gifted woman start over!  A donation of any size will go a long way towards enabling Yara and her husband to begin to rebuild their lives.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
