An open letter from Tim Taylor, Superintendent, Butte County Office of Education
Many of you have asked how you can help the schools up here. We really appreciate everyone's support, kindness and generosity. I want you to know trucks of food, clothing and items are arriving to help us. For schools we need donations that our Foundation will give directly to teachers, administrators and staff so they don't have to worry about waiting for purchases. Please share this and thanks for everything--we feel your love!
Super Bowl Pledges and Winners
