Help Victims of the Northern CA Fires

A Special Announcement from Delphi Academy Middle School Students

Food Drive - Assistance for Disaster Relief in Napa & Sonoma County

We have all smelled the smoke in the air, burning our eyes and throats. These are signs of a dozen raging fires to the north of us in Napa and Sonoma counties. Many people have lost their homes and are living in shelters. The Food Banks are low on food due to feeding five thousand people a day. We want to help the people who were affected by the fires, who are in need of food. The information we have is from emergency volunteers who have informed us what is needed right now.

Delphi Academy is trying to collect non-perishable food to donate to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. We will collect food and money donations for one week, until Friday, October 20. We will buy appropriate and needed food items in bulk with any money given. Then, on Saturday, October 21, we will deliver the food to emergency volunteers working directly with the Food Bank. If we have a lot and get enough to deliver some sooner, we will try to arrange that. You can help! We offer three different ways below:

1. HELP BY DONATING FOOD

Here is a list of some suggested non-perishable foods:

- Peanut Butter
- Bread
- Protein Bars
- Granola Bars
- Crackers
- Jelly/ Jam
- Canned Soup (with pop tops; no can openers)
- Cans of Tuna (again with pop tops)
- Nuts
- Beef Jerky
- Baby Food
- Baby Formula
- Pet Food
- Individual Apple Sauce Packs
- Fruit Leather/ Dried Fruit Strips

Special rules from the Food Bank to note:

- No glass containers
- No homemade food (because the food can perish)
- No junk food (such as candy or highly processed food, etc…)
- Remember that they have no way to cook food right now so rice, pasta, etc are not wanted.

2. HELP BY DONATING VIA OUR AMAZON WISH LIST

If you are unable to go to the store, but still want to donate food, use our Wish List to shop.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2JLAYSOY39UBX?ref_=cm_sw_em_...

We will be adding more items to the Disaster Relief Food Wish List as we are told of needs.

You can use Amazon Prime to have the donation delivered to the Delphi address which is:
℅ Delphi Academy
1 West Campbell Avenue, Building A, #A110
Campbell, CA 95008

3. DONATE MONEY DIRECTLY TO OUR DELPHI DISASTER RELIEF FOOD FUND

Delphi Academy is a non-profit school. If you'd like us to do the shopping for you, please use this donation button:





We will use 100% of the money given to purchase bulk items that are needed by the Redwood Empire Food Bank.

All donations -- food, food delivery or monetary -- must be turned in by Friday, October 20, 2017. You can bring them to Reception at the front of the school.

Thank you for your help!

Sincerely,
Jojo and Abhinav
