HELPING THOSE IN NEED!
Many people were displaced by the Valley Fire, and are in need of support. We have seen many Howell Mountain School parents give their time to make a difference at the Evacuation Center in Calistoga.
The school has cancelled our Beautification Day (originally scheduled for Saturday, September 19th) in order to free up the people who wish to help out those who have been impacted by the fire.
At this time, we are being told that there is an immense need for sorting and organizing the donations that are arriving at the center in Calistoga. We have been asked to direct people who with to help to report to the RV Park Section of the Calistoga Fairground and speak with Shane. He is the organizer of this section of the Center.
Limited parking is available at the Mt. Helena Golf Course, and there is also street parking. Carpooling might be the best solution to the parking issue.
Thank you to all who donate their time and other resources during this crisis.
