"This makes you realize the little things in life that you don’t even realize you are blessed with, as simple as a toothbrush, a change of clothes, toiletries, food or personal and memorable belongings. Always appreciate what you have been given," alumna Madison Hopkins said.

Following a house fire at 3 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, the Morgan-Hopkins family was left without food, clothes or a place to stay. The family and their pets made it out safely, but are now in need of restaurant gift cards and self-care items as they recover.

“As a friend of the Hopkins’, I want to step up and give all I can and encourage others to do the same because it’s so rare and unexpected for this to happen to someone,” junior Anika Zepeda said. “It’s only best if everyone tries to do anything they can to give back to a family who just lost almost everything.”

A Go Fund Me created Feb. 4 raised more than half of its $20,000 goal in two days.

In addition to supplies rounded up by Nancy Knickerbocker on Facebook, supplies and donations of gift cards and toiletries can be dropped off in the main office at any time throughout the school day. Donations are also being accepted at Henry Elementary school.
