California State PTA Stands with Families Affected by Wildfires 
SACRAMENTO – October has always been a difficult month for wildfires in California, but this year in particular the extreme devastation is felt by numerous communities throughout the state. California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald issued the following statement: 

“California State PTA is deeply concerned about everyone impacted by the devastating wildfires affecting Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake Counties as well as those affected by the Canyon Fire 2 in Orange County. 

"As a Sonoma County resident, I have seen firsthand the devastation in my own community. My thoughts are with all of those who have been impacted. They are our families, friends, colleagues, volunteers and members and we remain steadfast in our commitment to support them as they rebuild and recover. 

“California State PTA urges everyone to donate to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund or the American Red Cross Canyon Fire 2 Relief Fund. Redwood Credit Union is paying for all administrative costs for the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, so 100 percent of your donation will go to relief efforts and directly to aid the victims. 

“PTA leaders and members work hard every day to give our children and school communities what they need to thrive. Our mission now becomes that much more important.”
