Woolsey Fire Relief 4 Mrs. Partida
On Saturday, November 10, 2018, one of Van Nuys High School's beloved dance Teachers, Mrs. Reesa Partida, came home to rubble. She, like many others, became yet another victim of the Woolsey Fires in Southern California; her and her husband's home burned to the ground. She loves those mountains more than most, and I do not know anyone else who spent so much time appreciating their beauty; hiking, biking, running, etc. The day before, she came to school to dance with her classes because "what good would it do to sit [at an evacuation center] and just watch the news" (Reesa Partida). My team (Elizabeth Talledo, Chelsea Saldana and Madison Opalisky) and I, Brandon Large, are four of her students. It shatters my soul to see such a gold-hearted human being fall into such misfortune. Please help me to raise money and mend what she has lost. The money could aid Mrs. Reesa Partida's search for a new home, a new bike, a new aerial rig, or to pay the rent for a temporary home in the mean time. The money will go directly to Mrs. Partida from the campaign; she is the sole beneficiary. She has always been so strong for her students. Now, it is time for us to be strong for her!

It is astounding to see the amount of people showing their support. Because of you all, our dance teacher, Mrs. Reesa Partida, can start anew with a bit more financial comfort. Losing a home is no easy obstacle. With everyone’s help, I hope that Mrs. Partida can make it. I know she will. She is resilient, loving, and everything in between. Thank you all. The campaign will remain open to donations until at least December 8, 2018. Remember: spread love in your daily lives and lift up those around you.
Thank you to everyone who has donated thus far! We have surpassed the set goal, but that does not mean that the campaign has ended. For those who are thinking about donating, you still have the opportunity to do so. This fundraiser for one of the best dance teachers at Van Nuys High School will continue until at least December 8, 2018. Every cent will contribute to Mrs. Partida and her husband’s efforts to rebuild a fresh start, and the amount of money which we give her therefore has no limit. Please, keep showing her love in addition to donating. Hugs are worth millions of dollars to the heart, and, in this day in age, Mrs. Partida needs both. Thank you!
We passed our goal! From the bottoms of our hearts, thank you so much to everyone who donated and helped us reach our goal. We are thrilled! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
