The Valley Fire that has devastated areas of Napa and Lake County hasvalley fire
pushed our friends and colleagues in the Middletown area to the brink
of despair. The stories of lost homes, lost lives, an entire town
evacuated and harrowing recounts of barely making it out of harm’s
way are very frightening and almost unbearable to hear. Many
Middletown High School faculty, administrative members, students and
families have lost everything. Our hearts are broken, but now is the
time for a call to action.
Middletown High School needs our help and I am hoping that NCS member schools and
surrounding communities will rally to assist in helping the school move forward, and make life in
their current situation a little more bearable.
Middletown student-athletes have lost uniforms, shoes, backpacks, socks, clothes and basic
equipment, etc. Working with the school administration, who are facing their own personal
challenges, we can help provide the funds to get the community back on their feet.
How can you help?
After conversations with Middletown High School Principal Bill Roderick and support from the
CIF-North Coast Section Executive Committee, NCS is recommending contributions to the
following link:
If individuals do not feel comfortable with a donation at an internet site checks can be mailed
directly to Middletown High School, which will resume school tomorrow, September 16th. Checks
should be made out to Middletown High School.
The address is:
