7 TECA Students Fire Relief Fund

On January 28th, the building fire in the Mission dramatically changed the lives of seven Thomas Edison Charter Academy (TECA) children and their families, destroying all of their belongings and rendering them homeless. Despite the recent crisis these seven students are proving their strong character here at TECA by smiling, engaging in the classroom, and remaining hopeful even in the face of immense challenges. They are truly an inspiration and, while they will not ask for it, they are in need of help. Although no one can replace a family pet, cherished family photos, or provide immediate housing to these families, a donation to this fund can make rebuilding their lives a bit easier. 

Here's a chance to truly give back to your community. Help support these students and their families who have not only lost their home but are suddenly facing an uncertain future. Please donate and share our campaign. Together we can make sure these seven TECA students come out of this crisis with a renewed sense of hope and stronger beliefs in the power of community.
