These families with young children have struggled to make the best of a bleak situation -- property was damaged, food in refrigerators lost and clean-up efforts have been extensive. If this is not enough to contend with, living in a gymnasium and sleeping with many other families is fraught with additional challenges.
Our hope is that Belmont-Redwood Shores School District families will band together to show these families love and support through a donation to this fund. We will raise money through Thursday, December 18, and then give the families monies raised on Friday, December 19th. Gift cards to Safeway and Target will be purchased with the monies as well as VISA gift cards. The first $25,000 raised will be given directly to the 11 BRSSD families (7 at Nesbit, 2 at Cipriani and 2). The remainder of the money will be distributed to other families living in the mobile home park with an emphasis on supporting the elderly and families with children.
We plan on delivering the gift cards to families Friday early evening at their homes and NBC Bay Area's Terry McSweeney will be there to join in the fun.
