Teller Family in Need

Posted 04/18/2017

Yesterday, one of our students experienced an extremely devastating fire. The family is all safe, but they lost absolutely EVERYTHING in the fire that destroyed their home.
We’re banding together as a school to help this family through this incredibly hard time. We’re asking for community help and donations, wherever possible.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family:

There are some immediate needs that we’d like to try to help them meet:
-Housing: as of this moment, the family is completely homeless. This family includes the mother, a dog, and 2 sons: 1 in middle school, 1 in 5th grade at Teller.
-Toiletries
-Clothing: mom is about a small/size 6 womens, and a size 9.5 shoe
the boys are sizes 12/14 and 16/18 – both wear size 8.5 to 9 shoe.
-Food
-Gas
-Dog food
-any donations to help with bills that are due immediately
We’re putting together a cash/grocery card donation in the Office. Any donated items can also be dropped off at the Teller office.
If anyone has any leads on affordable housing in the area, that would be a HUGE help to the family.
Thank you all for the community you create here at Teller. We are constantly humbled by the knowledge that we’ll band together to help those in need.
