Yreka Sheriffs Office

From their donation site they held a big yard sale and put out buckets labeled “Athletics”, “Music”, “Art” and “Cooking” so that people could donate towards something they were passionate about. The proceeds totaled $3,000 to be used for these purposes! WOW.

Donation Sean Feil

Sean Feil, a fifth grade WES student took it upon himself to raise money for his school after the Boles Fire.  He raised over $500.00 to be donated to Cub Power.  This is a prime example of what it means to demonstrate Cub Character.  WES is very proud and thankful for Sean's generous donation.  In the picture he is presenting the money raised to Carson Ekman, WES student body President.

Boles Fire

SEPTEMBER 15, 2015

Weed Elementary and Weed High School students and staff had a great celebration of our town’s resilience and strength last Tuesday! We all lined up to form a huge “W” and took a bird’s eye photo that will be on our website. Then, the High School Student Body led us in a dance and we all had a BBQ lunch & popsicles together! We also signed posters to send to the towns effected by the Valley Fire. Isabella Reyna-Houck was the winner of our $50 Rays gift card! Thank you to all who participated and a special thanks to Rays Food Place for their generous donations!!

Group and Individual Donations

We have been so touched by the donations we’ve received from near and far. People have taken time from their busy schedules to consider what our school and town have been through. What a fantastic show of Character that our students are benefiting from in so many ways. Our hope is that as these students grow and learn, they’ll always remember the support that was extended to them in their time of need and pay it forward to others.



Grant Elementary School in Redding Here’s an excerpt from their letter: During the month of October, student council members (and sometimes their friends and younger siblings) stood at the morning drop-off location collecting donations from families and staff. We are pleased to enclose checks totaling $600 for your general fund; we know your needs are great and that these contributions will be put to good use.

We had Project Linus, a quilting group, come to our school and give EVERY ONE of our students a blanket that was made with love! We are so appreciative of what they have done for our students and the kindness they have shown us! Thank you Project Linus!!!
