All of us in the neighborhoods surrounding Austin Creek Elementary School know how the Glass fire evacuations began with chaos and confusion in the last hours of Sunday, September 27. For some, it ended with varying degrees of exhaustion, smoke damage, and lingering anxiety. For others, the fire's end meant the loss of their home, and the start of a time-consuming and emotionally-draining process of rebuilding their lives.
The Austin Creek Parents' Club has established this page as a means of collecting donations in our Compassion Fund, and distributing 100% of the collections to the families in our school community that were impacted by this tragedy. Distribution of funds will be made by our School Principal, Jenny Lynch, who will keep the names of the recipients confidential. If you have any questions, you may reach out to her. Questions sent to this GoFundMe page will be sent to the main Austin Creek Parents' Club email.
If you prefer to write a check, checks can be made out to Austin Creek Parents' Club (subject line: Compassion Fund), and dropped off at the school during regular school hours.
We thank you in advance for considering helping those in our community during their time of need.
