At 8:00am on Saturday, February 25th, the staff at Shirakawa Elementary School opened the doors of their cafeteria to the community members affected by the flooding. In coordination with our district office, a hot breakfast was served by our district's Food Services. Families who came today were provided with supplies to assist them with cleaning up, as well as donated food, water, and clothing. Other supplies available were baby strollers, diapers, toiletries and basic essentials.
We continue to receive generous donations from our immediate community and beyond. We had donations come from families, non-profit, and local community organizations nearby and as far away as Fremont.
The efforts put forth by Shirakawa's staff and parent volunteers were indescribable! There were helping hands with unloading donations to loading donations for the affected families. We would like to thank everyone for their generous donations of time, food, clothing, and money!
